Accutron recalls nitrous oxide flow meters

Accutron has voluntarily recalled the Ultra PC% cabinet-mount flow meter, used with nitrous oxide-oxygen sedation systems.

The company issued the recall after learning through customer complaints that the flow meter was flowing nitrous oxide gas without any oxygen gas flow, according to an alert from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The company said it has received two complaints about this defect; however, no injuries have been reported to date, according to the FDA.

Customers with the affected flow meters should stop using them and return them to Accutron for a free replacement, the FDA noted. The company notified distributors and customers of this recall by mail and is arranging for return and replacement of all recalled products.
