County residents who received their Naloxone kits through the Harford County Health Department between May 2014 through September 2016, are urged to check their atomizer for recalled lot numbers. This request is in response to Teleflex Medical Inc.’s medical device recall for specific lots of MAD Nasal Intranasal Mucola Atomizer Device.
Teleflex received complaints that certain atomizers were delivering medication in a stream rather than a fully atomized plume. Although naloxone will act to reverse an opioid overdose, defective devises may cause a risk of under-dosing naloxone during nasal administration. While it has been confirmed that some of the corresponding devices have been distributed to Harford County residents and organizations, there have been no reports of product malfunctions.
If your naloxone atomizer has been affected by this recall, please call the Harford County Health Department at 410-877-2355 for a replacement. In addition, the health department is urging residents to also check the expiration date of the naloxone and use their certificate of completion from the training class as a prescription to refill at their local pharmacy.
Teleflex Medical Inc. has issued a recall for the following lot numbers of MAD300 Devices:
