These recalled products were distributed from October 2016 to May 2019.  Specific lot codes may be found through the following link: voluntary recall is due to reported complaints (<0.0025% of all in scope distributed product) indicating that there is an increased incidence of specific lots of the 15 mm Sheridan connector becoming disconnected from the endotracheal tube (ETT). The immediate consequence for patients is disconnection from the breathing circuit, which may result in insufficient oxygenation, requiring medical intervention. There have been four reports of death, and additional reports of serious injury where ETT disconnection may have been a factor.
