PRODUCTION CONTROLS: Manufacturing Material Removal
Action ArjoHuntleigh sent their customers a cover letter and the Field Safety Notification, informing them of the potential problem with the safety latches on the stretcher and a pending visit from an ArjoHuntleigh Service Technician to correct the problem. These letters were sent via UPS 2nd day delivery on 8/18/09. The customers were requested to test their stretchers upon receipt of the letter following the instructions for checking the safety latches on the stretcher: * Place the stretcher on its side on a non-scratch surface. * Try to pull the two sides apart with the safety latch engaged. * Test both the head and foot ends of the stretcher. * If the stretcher pulls apart, remove it from use immediately. It is important to note that all affected stretchers will be upgraded, whether they fail the test or not.
