  • Acción
    Per request from Japan, the firm initiated action on 10/5/06 replacing the devices in Japan with new devices. On 3/2/07 the firm issued a Safety Alert letter dated February 2007 to consignees (with the exception of Japan), advising that the defibrillators have an identified, lead-free component that is susceptible to failure within the first 250 days after manufacture. Failure of this component might cause a short that will drain the battery and eventually render the device inoperative. The letter further states that the firm strongly recommends that the consignee immediately and on a regular basis, inspect their defibrillator(s) per the LIFEPAK CR Plus/EXPRESS Operating Instructions - Section 5 Caring for the Defibrillator. The letter also provides a website to allow consignees to enter their device serial number(s) to determine if their LIFEPAK CR Plus/LIFEPAK EXPRESS are included in the action. This recall strategy is subject to modification pending the performance of devices remaining on the market.
