Recall of t:slim Insulin Cartridges by Tandem Diabetes Care

Categories: Lifestyle, Wellness

Tandem Diabetes Care has recently announced that it is initiating a voluntary recall of insulin cartridges. Certain boxes of cartridges may be at risk for leaking.  A leaking cartridge could result in your pump delivering too much or too little insulin, which could lead to a serious adverse effect.

Tandem Diabetes Care is recalling lots that were shipped on or after December 17th, 2013. There were approximately 4,746 boxes of affected cartridges (there are 10 cartridges in a box).

If you think you may have one of these cartridges, you should discontinue use of them. Visit the Firm Press Release for the complete listing of affected cartridges. The company is contacting customers with affected cartridges and is asking them to call Tandem Technical Support in order to receive a replacement cartridge at no extra cost.

Tandem Customer Support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-877-801-6901.
