Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
It was discovered that customers were not supplied with a procedure and schedule for calibrating the FriendlyLight YAG lasers.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
RADIATION CONTROL FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY ACT: Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act
Action Aerolase issued a letter to customers, dated 11/30/2011, identifying the affected product and the reason for the recall. Aerolase is providing, at no charge, the Appendix to the Operating Manual for the LightPod lasers. This Appendix describes the procedure and frequency for checking whether the laser is within calibration, but it is not a procedure for customers to actually calibrate the laser themselves; any attempt to do so by any parties other than a company technician employed by Aerolase would void the warranty. Please contact us any time at 914- 345-8300 with any questions.
