Editor's Note

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on May 27 identified the recall of the ArjoHuntleigh Polska Sara Plus floor lift as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because of the risk of smoke or fire if the lift is used when the battery is low. The lift is used for short transfers of patients from bed to wheelchair or wheelchair to toilet.

To date, there have been 44 complaints about this issue and no injuries or deaths.

Manufacturing dates were October 13, 2016, to January 13, 2022, and some units received spare parts through March 4, 2022.
