September 14, 2015
A Class I recall of the OxyTOTE Portable Oxygen Unit from the Western/Scott Fetzer Company was initiated in January 2015 because the oxygen cylinder can catch fire and the device canister could burst. These devices are used to hold and deliver pressurized oxygen to patients.
The FDA recall Web page reports one injury and one death from the OxyTote. According to the recall description, "When the injury occurred, the unit was dropped from 4 feet; where the death occurred the employee did not drop the gas cylinder, but set it down by his side."
