In the Consumer Alert referenced above, Kathryn S. Daws-Kopp, an electrical engineer at the FDA says, "Many hospitals, lactation consultants and specialty medical supply stores rent breast pumps for use by multiple users.
Sometimes these pumps are labeled "hospital grade". But that term is not one FDA recognizes, and there is no consistent definition. Consumers need to know it doesn't mean the pump is safe or hygienic." Daws-Kopp adds that different companies may mean different things when they label a pump with this term, and that FDA encourages manufacturers to instead use the terms "multiple user" and "single user" in their labeling. "If you don't know for sure whether a pump is meant for a single user or multiple users, it's safer to just not get it," she says.

Kathryn S. Daws-Kopp, an electrical engineer at FDA, explains that all breast pumps consist of a few basic parts: a breast shield that fits over the nipple, a pump that creates a vacuum to express the milk, and a detachable container for collecting the milk.
There are three basic kinds of pump: manual, battery-powered and electric. Mothers can opt for double pumps, which extract milk from both breasts at the same time, or single, which extract milk from one breast at a time. Daws-Kopp, who reviews breast pumps and other devices for quality and safety, suggests that mothers talk to a lactation consultant, whose expertise is in breastfeeding, or other health care professional about the type of breast pump that will best fit their needs. "Sometimes these pumps are labeled "hospital grade," says Daws-Kopp. "But that term is not one FDA recognizes, and there is no consistent definition. Consumers need to know it doesn't mean the pump is safe or hygienic." Daws-Kopp adds that different companies may mean different things when they label a pump with this term, and that FDA encourages manufacturers to instead use the terms "multiple user" and "single user" in their labeling. "If you don't know for sure whether a pump is meant for a single user or multiple users, it's safer to just not get it," she says.

Although breast pumps can range from single, manual pumps to double, electric-powered models, all have a few basic parts, including a breast shield that fits over the nipple, a pump that creates a vacuum to express the milk and a detachable container for collecting the milk, Kathryn Daws-Kopp, an FDA electrical engineer, said in the report, which was released Jan. 15.
"Sometimes these pumps are labeled 'hospital grade,' but that term is not one the FDA recognizes, and there is no consistent definition," Daws-Kopp said. "Consumers need to know it doesn't mean the pump is safe or hygienic." Daws-Kopp pointed out that the definition of "hospital grade" may also vary between companies. The FDA encourages breast pump makers to instead use the terms "multiple user" and "single user" in their labeling. "If you don't know for sure whether a pump is meant for a single user or multiple users, it's safer to just not get it," Daws-Kopp advised.
