    Teleflex medical is recalling the product referenced above due to a labelling inconsistency. teleflex medical has received complaints that the labelling of units from the affected lot indicates that it contains a size 8mm tracheal tube but may contain a size 7.5mm tracheal tube. it is unlikely that the mislabelling will result in any serious adverse health consequences; however, it may cause difficulty in obtaining a proper seal between the device and the patient, possibly necessitating reintubation of the patient and resulting in a delay in treatment. teleflex medical is recalling the affected lot in an effort to provide our customers and their patients with the highest quality product possible.
