Teleflex Medical issues nationwide recall on faulty nasal atomizers
Ohio officials urge all in possession of Naloxone to check supplies & replace defective atomizers
State officials have issued an urgent alert to administrators of naloxone after Teleflex Medical issued a nationwide product recall on the MAD300 nasal atomizer.
