AliveCor's new heart monitoring app crashes, recalled by company

Fierce 15 company AliveCor recalled the Alive ECG App 2.1.2 for its mobile phone-enabled AliveCor Heart Monitor electrocardiogram (ECG). The app is intended to be used with Apple's ($AAPL) iOS operating sytem. According to a recall notice on the FDA's website, there are 5,600 active users of the app. The FDA says AliveCor has posted information on its website, Facebook page and Twitter account to alert users about the issue. The agency deemed the recall Class III. That is its most minor classification and means use of or exposure to the "violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences." AliveCor has launched Version 2.1.3, which it says fixes the issues that caused the crash. More
