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.
