The storage tank had off-site monitoring and an audible alarm that would alert staff to such a temperature change.

"We don't have the foggiest idea about the reasons why yet", DePompei said.

University Hospitals said it is bringing in independent experts to determine the cause.

"At this point, we do not know the viability of all of the stored eggs and embryos, although we do know some have been impacted", said Patti DePompei, the president of University Hospital Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital and UH MacDonald Women's Hospital, in a Facebook video announcing the news.

The typical process of storage or freezing of the eggs involves an extraction of the eggs from a woman after which it is stored in liquid nitrogen tanks in a cryogenic facility.

The failure caused the temperature to rise, ultimately making the eggs and embryos at the facility lose their viability.

Approximately 500 to 600 families were affected by the malfunction and University Hospitals have begun the tedious task of reaching out to all the families to see how they wish to proceed.

"We are so very sorry this happened". The equipment reportedly failed last month due to which the temperature inside the refrigerator storing the eggs became warmer than it should. "Obviously the situation that occurred here is devastating for the families involved, and it's devastating for. our staff", DePompei tells NBC News. "We are committed to getting answers and working with our patients individually to address their concerns". A call center was also set up to expedite scheduling for any patients that need to come in.

The hospital has asked patients or those with questions to call the UH Fertility Center information line at 216-286-9740.
