I got a recall letter advising that certain lots of the ARS 10 ga decompression needle sold by North American Rescue are being recalled.

The recall is for units sold individually (not as part of a kit).

Here is a cut and paste of the letter:

This is to inform you of a product recall involving:
LOTS W668NI, W693WF, W694ZH, W695DD, W696FN, W697IJ
UDI NUMBER 00842209108831
See product photograph (ENCLOSURE 1) for ease in identifying the product at user level.
North American Rescue (NAR) is voluntarily recalling product ZZ-0298 Lots W668NI, W693WF, W694ZH, W695DD, W696FN, and W697IJ.

We are recalling these products due to a manufacturing deviation which resulted in the device labeled with the incorrect Instruction for Use.
Affected product was shipped between January 20, 2021, and August 1, 2021. This product was shipped individually.
