Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
As a distributor of tubing manufactured by Smooth Bore Plastics, we are initiating a product recall for specific lots of KC 036, KC 060 and KC 072 reusable ventilator tubes due to a possible manufacturing defect: A few tubes may have the potential for delamination to occur between the layers of the tube wall which, should it occur, would result in leakage

If product was further distributed consignees were asked to provide recall information to their customers. Customers with questions should call 412-854-1133, ext 433.
