Medtronic Recalls Insulin Infusion Device

Comments Off

An insulin infusion device used with an insulin pump was recently voluntarily recalled by its maker. According to Medtronic, the device can cause serious injury or death, due to a mechanical malfunction that could prevent proper air ventilation, causing either too much or too little insulin to be delivered. Medtronic says that about 60,000 of its Quick-set infusion sets are involved in the recall. The Quick-set infusion sets are used wth MiniMed Pardigm insulin pumps. The affected devices have reference numbers MMT-396, MMT-397, MMT-398 and MMT-399, with lot numbers starting with "8." Consumers can locate the lot numbers on the box and on individual infusion packaging.
