Another Class I AED recall

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Welch Allyn's Aug. 24 recall of AED 20 automatic external defibrillators is Class I, the most serious designation, FDA says. Some 1,722 devices manufactured between October 2003 and January 2005 at a facility in Buffalo Grove, Ill., display an error message from an "intermittent electrical connection" that could lead to device failure, the firm says. The action follows a string of recalls from Welch Allyn, including Class I recalls for the AED 20 in June 2006 and May 2005 (1"The Gray Sheet" June 19, 2006, In Brief)
