Teleflex Medical Recalls Naloxone Nasal Atomizers


Officials are urging naloxone carriers to check their purchases against a national recall list.

A press release from Public Health Dayton and Montgomery County and the Community Overdose Action Team (COAT), Montgomery County, says there is a problem with some MAD300 nasal atomizers.

The manufacturer, Teleflex Medical, voluntarily issued the recall and says there is no problem with the drug itself, only the device used to deliver it correctly to overdose victims.

Specifically, "it was discovered that faulty nasal atomizers shoot a stream of naloxone into patients’ noses rather than producing a mist, potentially making the overdose reversal drug less effective." 

Atomizers affected by the recall include:

160108 160231 160440 160708 160117 160300 160500 160718 160126 160313 160518 160728

160145 160327 160602 160800 160146 160400 160611 160804 160200 160409 160621 160814

160219 160422 160631 160816 160225 160432 160701 160823
