Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corp has initiated a class 1 recall of the EZ Breathe Atomizer because of a manufacturing defect, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced June 3. Class 1 recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death, according to the FDA. The manufacturing defect in this product could result in a quarter-inch-diameter washer ("Plate A") becoming dislodged from the atomizer. If this occurs, users may accidentally swallow the washer or choke on it, which can lead to serious adverse health consequences or death, the FDA said on its Web site.
