Further information

This product presents with a risk of choking as the product may not work and could worsen the situation by further pushing obstructions down the airway passage due to poor design and quality.

​Anti-choking devices are intended to alleviate choking incidents after Basic Life Support protocols have been attempted and failed.​

Counterfeit and unbranded anti-choking devices may pose a significant risk of worsening choking if used. These devices should not be used in the event of a choking emergency and should be disposed of once identified as counterfeit or non-compliant.

Counterfeit and unbranded anti-choking devices appear similar in design to the genuine LifeVac anti-choking device, and primarily originate from China. No genuine anti-choking devices marketed in the UK are manufactured in China.

Additionally, the instructions supplied with the product do not sufficiently communicate the warnings, steps and considerations to take into account for appropriate and safe use of these devices. This product does not meet safety standards.

Counterfeit and unbranded copies lack UKCA / CE mark, details of the manufacturer, UDI and serial numbers on the device.

If you have bought this product, stop using it immediately and return it to the distributor for a refund.

For more information see the attached recall notice.​
