  • Causa
    As a distributor of tubing manufactured by smooth bore plastics, we are initiating a product recall for specific lots of kc 036, kc 060 and kc 072 reusable ventilator tubes due to a possible manufacturing defect: a few tubes may have the potential for delamination to occur between the layers of the tube wall which, should it occur, would result in leakage.
