Audience: Pharmacists, distributors, and healthcare professionals

3M notified healthcare professionals of a voluntary recall of Maxair Inhaler (pirbuterol acetate inhalation aerosol), press and breathe metered dose inhalers. The possibility exists that a Maxair press and breathe aerosol inhaler may stick intermittently and patients may not receive the expected puff of medication. This recall does not affect Maxair Autohaler (pirbuterol acetate inhalation aerosol), a breath-actuated metered dose inhaler.
