The consignees were informed that the middle pedal of the foot switch of the Allura FD10, FD20, CV20 systems, and the Allura Field Extension series does not not always become inactive (sticks) when pedal is released. The function of the middle pedal on the foot switch is freely programmable by the customer. If it is programmed for exposure and if the pedal does not release by itself, the patient will be exposed to X-ray longer than intended. The consignees were advised to check if their footswitch is possibly affected. Footswitch identification 452270000141 is noted.
