Reason For Recall Tandem Diabetes CareĀ®, Inc. announced that it is initiating a voluntary recall of specific lots of insulin cartridges that are used with the t:slimĀ® Insulin Pump. The affected cartridges may be at risk for leaking. The cause of the recall was identified during Tandems internal product testing, and has not been associated with any complaints or adverse events reported by customers. However, a cartridge leak could potentially result in the device delivering too much or too little insulin, which can lead to a serious adverse event.
