EZ Breathe Atomizer Recall Issued Due to Choking Hazard
Nearly a quarter of a million EZ Breathe Atomizers have been recalled, due to the risk that a small washer in the device may become dislodged during use and potentially cause patients to choke.
The EZ Breathe Atomizer recall was issued after the manufacturer, Life & Health Co., identified that a quarter inch washer on “Plate A” may come loose and cause life threatening risks for users. The problems may affect 242,892 atomizers.
The FDA has classified the action as a Class I medical device recall, suggesting that continued use of the device may pose a substantial risk of severe injury or death.
