Why is there a Medtronic insulin pump recall?
According to the FDA, certain Medtronic MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pumps may have a missing or broken retainer ring, which helps lock the insulin cartridge into place. If the insulin cartridge is not properly secured, it may result in the over or under-delivery of insulin, potentially resulting in hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.
Severe hyperglycemia can result in loss of consciousness, seizure, and even death.

- Continue using the pump if the reservoir locks into place correctly.
- If the pump is dropped accidentally, check the pump and retainer ring for damage and stop use if it’s damaged.
- Check the pump retainer ring and verify that the reservoir is locked correctly at every set change.
