FDA Issues Warning About ShoulderFlex Massager

Comments Off

This past week, the Federal Drug Administration issued a safety alert for the ShoulderFlex Massager.


The ShoulderFlex Massager, is distributed by King International, and described as a personal massage device designed for home use to provide deep tissue massage to the neck, shoulder and back while the user lies on a flat surface. King International has distributed 11,934 devices since Oct. 18, 2003. The devices were sold at various stores and online retailers in the United States.

The FDA is recommending that consumers immediately stop using the machine because of one death and one near-strangulation. These incidents occurred when a necklace and clothing became caught in a piece of the device that rotates during use. Two other reports involved clothing and hair became caught in the device.
