The Buffalo VA is resuming all surgical procedures following some sterilization concerns.

Earlier this week discoloration was found on white tray liners in some of the sterilization packages.

The VA Western New York Health System provided an update on Wednesday, saying the discoloration was attributed to natural elements found in the water used in the sterilization process and poses no risk to patients.

All previously canceled procedures are being rescheduled.
