The US Food and Drug Administration has issued a class 1 recall for a number of Cardiac Science’s Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). A class 1 recall, as described on the FDA’s website, is issued for
“dangerous or defective products that predictably could cause serious health problems or death. Examples of products that could fall into this category are a food found to contain botulinal toxin, food with undeclared allergens, a label mix-up on a life saving drug, or a defective artificial heart valve.”
The FDA’s recall comes after Cardiac Science issued their own voluntary recall of the same products. Medical malpractice attorneys urge patients who may be affected by these recalls to speak with their doctors immediately and contact an attorney. Below is the FDA’s actual announcement.
