3M Recalling Asthma Inhaler

May 8, 2002 | AP

A pressure-activated inhaler used by asthma patients is being recalled because it may stick and fail to provide the medication.

The recall of Maxair press-and-breathe inhalers was reported Wednesday on the Food and Drug Administration (news - web sites)'s Internet page.

The manufacturer, 3M Pharmaceuticals, offered to replace the inhalers with Maxair Autohaler, a breath-activated version, at no charge. The Maxair Autohaler is not affected by the recall.

However, patients will need to ask their physician for a new prescription for the switchover.

Maxair press and breathe inhalers being recalled carry the lot numbers 000644, 000756, 000947, 001009, 001110, 001111, 010025, 010195, 010283, 010413, 010414, 010482, 010580, 010708, 010709 or 011210.
