Medical device company Medtronic is recalling its mini-med 600 series insulin pumps over incorrect dosing.

A popular insulin pump used by thousands of patients with type one diabetes is being recalled by the Federal Drug Administration. It has received reports of over 2,100 injuries. Medtronic began notifying customers of a possible problem on November 21. Failing to keep the lock the insulin cartridge could cause hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia. The retainer ring helps lock the insulin cartridge into place in the pump's reservoir compartment. Severe hyperglycemia can lead to loss of consciousness, seizure or death.

The Model 630G product was distributed between September 2016 and October 2019, while the Model 670G product was distributed between June 2017 and August 2019, according to the FDA.

People who have Type 1 diabetes may use the MiniMed insulin pump to deliver insulin for the management of their diabetes.

Anyone using any of the recalled pumps should examine the retainer ring. If you stop using the pump, you should follow your doctor's recommendations and perform manual insulin injections.
