The FDA is recalling the MRL/Welch Allyn AED 20 Automatic External Defibrillator that is used by emergency personnel in hospitals, at fire stations and other risk management departments to treat heart attack victims. The defective equipment may show an error message (Defib Comm) which can result in the medical personnel giving improper treatment.

Hospitals, fire departments, and ambulance service companies are advised to stop using the defibrillators immediately and should contact the manufacturer to obtain a loaner until a new piece of equipment has arrived.
