FDA: Class I recall of Teleflex/Sheridan Endotracheal Tubes

By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on August 2 identified the recall by Centurion Medical Products of its Airway Kit containing Teleflex/Sheridan Endotracheal Tubes as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because of the potential for the tube connector to dislodge from the endotracheal tube, which may result in the patient being disconnected from the breathing circuit.

Four deaths and 18 injuries have been reported to Teleflex in association with disconnection.

Distribution dates were November 28, 2018, to June 5, 2019.
