February 17, 2011 - Memorandum - KING Airway Product Recall

MEMORANDUM

To: ALS Providers, AED Combi-Tube Providers

From: Kara Davis, RN, EMS Systems Director
Eric Rudnick, MD, Medical Director

Date: February 17, 2011

Subject:      KING Airway Product Recall

Effective this day, Thursday, February 17, 2011 the following King Systems airway devices are to be removed from service:

  • KLTSD 414 KING LTS-D Kit, Size 4 - 5/Case IV715
  • KLTSD 405 KING LTS-D, Size 5 201011-169

The aforementioned product and lot numbers were shipped from December 27, 2010 thru January 4, 2011.

The recall has been initiated due to product below specified hardness. The tubes are too pliable and would be difficult to use for intubation. There is a possibility that the tube could fold over in the narrower areas of assembly.

Please contact us for any further questions or concerns.
