NEW YORK — The NYPD has recalled an estimated 30,000 emergency devices designed to help cops breathe after a terrorist blast, because the manufacturer warned they might be defective, The Post has learned.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly ordered the recall earlier this month after the Pittsburgh-based manufacturer, Mine Safety Appliances (MSA), issued a safety alert for their life-saving Safe Escape CBRN Respirator, which bears the initials for the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear contaminants it is supposed to protect against.
