Guilford, CT – Defibtech LLC on April 29 announced a voluntary recall of certain semi-automatic automated external defibrillators sold under the Lifeline AED and ReviveR AED brand names.

In rare instances, the AEDs may cancel the charge in preparation for a shock, according to a company press release. Less than 11 percent of AEDs with this defect also may cancel the charge in high-humidity conditions.

To correct the issue, Defibtech said it will provide a free software update that can be performed at the location where the AED is installed.
