The FDA listed the Class II Recall of the Oxus America Inc, Rochester Hills, Mich, Li-ion battery used in the Oxus portable oxygen concentrator (POC) in the Enforcement Report for the week of February 13, 2013.

Also branded as Reliability Plus by Drive Medical, the POC is intended to deliver concentrated oxygen for adult patients with chronic pulmonary diseases. The company recalled the battery because, due to past battery inventory storage conditions and deficiencies in the maintenance procedure, it was possible that some batteries were over-discharged to the point of damaging the cells.

It distributed the 1,724 total units worldwide and in the US, including the states of New York, Michigan, and Colorado, and in Canada, the European Union, South Africa, Korea, and Brazil.
