Mobile Oxygen Storage Tank Recall Due to Fire Risk
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Pacific Consolidated Industries, LLC, informed healthcare professionals, the U.S. military and emergency/disaster personnel of a Mobile Oxygen Storage Tank recall due to a risk that the pressure gauge could rupture and ignite, posing a fire risk.
The Mobile Oxygen Storage Tanks were manufactured by Pacific Consolidated Industries and distributed between January 11, 2005, through March 28, 2007 for use in military aircraft and disaster areas to quickly supply oxygen.
A defect in the oxygen tank’s pressure gauge could allow it to rupture and catch fire as a result of hydraulic fluid in the pressure gauge tubing. The oxygen tank recall has been classified as a “Class I Recall”, since use of the product poses a substantial risk of serious injury or death.

Pacific Consolidated Industries notified the U.S. Defense Supply Center of this oxygen tank recall on July 24, 2008, and information about the recall was posted for healthcare professions on the FDA website yesterday.
All of the Pacific Consolidated Mobile Oxygen Storage Tanks impacted by this recall should be quarantined until appropriate arrangements are made to ship the units back to the manufacturer.

You do realize this item requires multiple people to move? Its not small by any measure. And no it is still not in general use in the military. Millions wasted.
