In Surprising Move, EPA Seeks to Ensure the Elimination of PFOA by 2015

FDA Issues Class 1 Recall of Vapotherm® 2000i and 2000h Respiratory Gas Humidifier to Avoid Potentially Fatal Infections

The FDA has issued a Class 1 Recall Vapotherm® 2000i and 2000h Respiratory Gas Humidifiers. “Class 1 recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of the product will cause serious injury or death.”
