Singapore: Taiwan-based Health & Life initiated a nationwide recall of 242,892 EZ Breathe Atomizers (Model #EZ-100) after becoming aware of an increase in the number of complaints.
The atomizers have been determined to have the possibility of a manufacturing defect which results in a quarter-inch diameter washer becoming dislodged from the EZ Breathe Atomizer, which potentially could result in a choking hazard.
The product is manufactured by Health & Life for Nephron Pharmaceuticals, who is managing the recall activities. No injuries have been reported to date.
Recalled EZ Breathe Atomizers were manufactured from May 21, 2012, through October 29, 2012, and distributed from August 3, 2012, through April 24, 2013. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the US FDA.
