Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
There have been reported incidents of a loose reservoir that can no longer be locked into the pump. The reservoir can become loose due to a broken or missing retainer ring that prevents a proper lock. If the reservoir is not properly locked into the pump, it could lead to over or under delivery of insulin, which could then result in hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Device Design
Action On November 21, 2019, the firm mailed a "Urgent Field Safety Notification" letter to patients and health care providers. In addition to informing patients about the recall, the letter ask patients do the following: 1. Examine the retainer ring on your pump. 2. If the reservoir does not lock into the pump or the retainer ring is loose, damaged or missing, discontinue using the insulin pump and revert to a back-up plan of manual insulin injections per your doctors recommendations. DO NOT insert the reservoir back into your pump while connected because you could mistakenly give yourself a large insulin bolus, and go to www.medtronicdiabetes.com/PumpRing or contact our Medtronic 24-Hour Technical Support line at 1-877-585-0166. 3. If your reservoir properly locks in place by the retainer ring, continue to use your pump. Remember to always follow the Instructions for Use on how to correctly insert the reservoir. PRECAUTIONS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL PATIENTS 1. If by accident you drop or bump your pump, check your pump and retainer ring for damage. 2. Routinely examine your pump retainer ring and check that your reservoir locks in place at every set change. 3. Please visit www.medtronicdiabetes.com/PumpRing for additional information and answers to frequently asked questions.
