The FDA and Welch Allyn issued a Class I recall of 14,054 Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) and MRL JumpStart external defibrillators manufactured between October 2002 and January 2007.
The devices have known issues, which may prevent defibrillation and cause patients serious injury or result in death. Specifically, the devices may experience low energy shock, unexpected shutdown, or may be susceptible to electromagnetic noise interference.
According to the FDA, Class 1 recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of the product will cause serious injury or death.
