- Model 670G—Distributed May 2015 to December 2020
463,464 devices have been recalled in the U.S. to date.
Defect can cause serious injury or death
Due to a missing or broken retainer ring, the device can deliver incorrect insulin doses, resulting in serious medical issues, including:
- Diabetic ketoacidosis
Medtronic informed customers about possible missing or broken clear retainer rings in the 630G and 670G pumps. The purpose of the retainer ring is to lock the insulin cartridge in place in the pump’s reservoir compartment. If the cartridge is not locked in place, too little or too much insulin can be delivered to the user.
