The Ohio Pharmacy Service Center (OPSC) has received a product recall issued by Teleflex Medical, the makers of the MAD300 nasal atomizer used in the Project DAWN kits that are assembled at OPSC. The product recall was issued for 32 lot numbers of the MAD300 product.
Many Project DAWN kits distributed to date are not subject to this recall and have working atomizers. However, we are asking that you check the lot numbers on all atomizers in the kits you have in supply. Below are the lot numbers listed in the product recall:
The recall contains the following statement:
“Teleflex Medical is recalling these products as they may not deliver a fully atomized plume of medication. Teleflex Medical has received complaints that the affected lots produced a straight stream instead of an atomized spray. The failure of the device to deliver an atomized plume may impair the effectiveness of the medication with which it is used. This can lead to serious injury or death in certain emergency situations, such as where the device is used in an off-label manner for needle-free delivery of drugs for reversal of life threatening narcotic overdose, reversal of life threatening hypoglycemia, or treatment of epileptic seizures.”
If your Project DAWN kit has an atomizer with a lot number listed in the product recall above, please call 740-695-1202 Ext. 24 or 30 to return your kit. The Belmont County Health Department will provide a new kit.
