Insulin cartridges recalled by Tandem Diabetes Care

Share this article:

Tandem Diabetes Care® Inc. initiated a voluntary recall of specific lots of insulin cartridges that are used with the t:slim® Insulin Pump in mid-January. Nearly 5,000 boxes of cartridges are affected.

The affected cartridges may be at risk for leaking, the company said, which could result in the device delivering too little or too much insulin.

Modifications to the company's cartridge manufacturing process have been implemented to prevent this from happening again, the company said.

Customers should discontinue using cartridges labeled with the certain lot numbers, which were shipped on or after December 17, 2013. To see the lot numbers, click here.
