Recall of External Defibrillator

Comments Off

MRL, a division of Welch Allyn, is recalling about 500 of its model AED20 automatic external defibrillators. A faulty electrical connection could cause the device to malfunction and fail to resuscitate patients. For all customers of the recalled defibrillators, MRL will pay the costs to ship and replace the defective component. The FDA has determined that this action is a Class I recall, which means that “there is a reasonable probability that the use or exposure to the product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.” See defibrillator recall
