|A Scoop Stretcher is made up of two frames that are held together with two locking devices, one on each end. Each locking device contains a safety latch. The safety latch could unintentionally release when the side frames are pulled for positioning.
||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.
