Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The insulin pump may lose time and date settings during a power interruption (such as a battery change) due to a faulty capacitor. If the capacitor fails, the time and date will return to default setting. Though the pump prompts customers to confirm the time and date, if the user does not recognize the time and date have returned to default, a shift of their basal rate time block could occur.
