Thousands of possibly defective CPR training air valves recalled in the US

A Massachusetts-based importer has issued a recall to estimated 10,000 units of air valves used in training people to conduct a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) due to a problem that could cause harm to people using it, a cpsc.gov article stated on November 23.

According to the recall, the “Practi-VALVE” CPR training air valves of Work ‘N Leisure may possibly cause choking injuries to intended users if a part of it suddenly detaches while being used. In the recall documents submitted by Work ‘N Leisure, the cap attached at the end of the air valves could choke the user when they use it in mouth-to-mouth CPR training using a dummy. Before the recall was issued, the company and the CPSC have been notified of three air valve end-caps accidentally getting into the trainees’ mouth or throat. People who might have the air valves bearing Lot 3197 have been advised to stop from using it and coordinate with the recalling company for the free product replacement.

People could find themselves seriously injured as a result of using defective products sold in the market.
