Animas Insulin Pump Cartridge Recall

If anyone you know uses an Animas insulin pump, let them know to check the lot numbers of the cartridges. Animas Corporation said recently that some of its 2.0 mL insulin cartridges shipped between Nov. 30, and Jan. 4, may leak insulin, which means the pumps may deliver less insulin than expected. In addition, the company said the leak may cause the pump not to alarm correctly if there is an “occlusion in the infusion set.”
