This Monday the Federal Prosecutor for the consumer (Profeco) in cooperation with the Federal Commission for Protection against Health Risks (Cofepris) and with the companies responsible for the distribution and manufacture of medical oxygen, they started the campaign “Return your tank. For the love of life “.
It is intended that those individuals who no longer occupy the oxygen tanks they requested or rented at the time will return them to the dealers. That way, they can be used by other patients who need them badly. The following could therefore be read in Profeco’s invitation via Twitter:
“If you have a medical oxygen tank at home that you no longer need, give it back and give it life. Contact your dealer and send the oxygen tank back as soon as possible. It has already helped you, it helps others. “
This campaign was born due to the increase in cases of COVID-19. Because of this, the demand for tanks and refills has increased significantly. However, the availability of these containers has decreased as people reportedly preferred to keep them in reserve.
How can I return an oxygen tank?
Use the label to identify the container supplier and give them a call.
Then take the tank or ask for it to be picked up at your home if possible.
