Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following At Home Oxygen Equipment products are subject to this recall:

  • Inogen One G3 Concentrator Portable Lightweight Medical Oxygen Machines, sold with part numbers 19252750, 19252534, 19285707, 19285618, 19285718, 19285621, 19285334, 19252739, 19285727, 19284756, 19252747, 19285626, 19285728, 19252726, 19284685, 19282715, 19285619 or 19252733 and an ARTG designation of 225950

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

According to the ACCC, when connected to a fully charged 8-cell battery as its only power source, an operating condition may cause an abrupt shut down of the Inogen One G3 Portable Oxygen Concentrator (“POC”). If no action is taken, the POC may become unresponsive for up to one (1) minute, after which it will behave as though a battery was just connected with a standard flash screen on display. The POC will then be ready for another startup. If powered on again, this cycle may need to be repeated until the 8-cell battery has been adequately discharged allowing the POC to operate as normal.

If this defect occurs, it poses a risk of interruption to the supply of Oxygen to users, which in turn, may lead to health complications for those who depend on Oxygen to breathe or to supplement their Oxygen intake due to various cardiovascular and/or pulmonary conditions and may worsen these pre-existing conditions including contributing to serious complications and/or end-of-life events.

Customers are advised that arrangements will be made for the Portable Oxygen Concentrators to be repaired and/or replaced. An Air Liquide Healthcare representative will contact customers via phone to initiate the replacement POC, and collect the recalled concentrator.
