Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain Practi-Valve devices that are used to practice mouth-to-mouth resuscitation/CPR.

To use the device as intended, the trainee connects the blue plastic air Valve to a plastic mask, places it over the training dummy’s mouth and blows through the valve to fill the dummy’s lungs with air. The mark, “WNL Products” is printed in white on the Valves; this recall only involves Valves in lot number 3197, a number printed on the packaging. The valves measure approximately 2.75 inches long by 1 inch wide and are disposable.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Practi-Valve brand Training Valves are pictured on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the end-cap of the valves can detach in a person’s mouth while being used during CPR training, posing a choking hazard. The company has received three reports of the end-caps of the valves detaching from the Practi-Valve into consumers’ mouths or throats during CPR training.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of CPR Trainers equipped with the recalled Practi-Valve brand Training Valves, please do not use them. Instead, immediately stop using the recalled devices and contact Work ‘N Leisure to return the Valve for free replacements.
