A3/A5 Anesthesia Delivery Systems that were distributed from May 31 of last year to this past July 15 have been recalled by Mindray Medical International Limited. If the CO2 absorber canister gasket is not seated accurately on the device, then a leak could potentially occur. A customer detailed an apparent leak to the company in a report, at which point Mindray issued the recall. Thankfully, no one has reportedly become injured in conjunction with the issue at this time, and Mindray has stated that they have already contacted customers via a letter. However, only around 70% of the affected systems have had the defect taken care of at this time.
