  • RECALL: 1 dead, 2K injured after MedTronic insulin pumps give incorrect dosages

Medtronic MiniMed insulin pumps are being recalled by the company due to a dosing defect that has already caused 2,175 injuries and at least one death. The recall is classified as a Class 1, the most serious type of recall.

All lots of MiniMed Model 630G from before October 2019 and all lots of MiniMed Model 670G from before August 2019. This model is used by people 16 and older. The 670G model may be used by people 14 years old and older. The retainer ring helps lock the insulin cartridge into place in the pump's reservoir compartment.

Medtronic has received over 26,000 complaints about the devices. If the cartidge is not locked firmly into place, under or over delivery of insulin may happen, which could result in hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Examine the retainer ring of their pump. If it's loose, damaged or just not there, contact Medtronic at 877-585-0166 and stop using the pump. According to the FDA, hyperglycemia can result in loss of consciousness and seizures and can be fatal.

The prosecutor José Grinda, however, insisted on his maintaining the ‘accused’ status. Mikhail Fridman has a legal case on his hands as well.

If the pump is dropped by accident, check the pump and retainer ring for damage and stop use if it is damaged. They also advise checking the retainer ring and ensure that the reservoir is locked correctly at every set change.

The Food and Drug Administration announced the recall Wednesday, but Medtronic began communicating with customers in November.

In an FAQ for the safety notification sent out for the products, Medtronic noted that this recall does not apply to the MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps.
