The first week of July, Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE:MDT) recalled specific lots of Quick-set® infusion sets that are used with MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps. An infusion set is a thin plastic tube used to deliver insulin from an insulin pump to a diabetes patient, and is typically replaced by the patient every three days. Medtronic recently discovered that approximately two percent of "Lot 8" Quick-set infusion sets (which represents approximately 60,000 infusion sets out of an estimated 3 million infusion sets currently with customers) may not work.

This recall involves Affected infusion sets are reference numbers MMT-396, MMT-397, MMT-398 and MMT-399 with lot numbers starting with the number "8." The lot number (for example 8XXXXXX) is clearly marked on both the product box label, and on each individual infusion set package. Visit the Medtronic Diabetes website at to view the labels of "Lot 8" Quick-set infusion sets.

    I have and ol' beloved uncle who has diabetes and would have a difficult time if he (or anybody else) got hurt by these products. Let's hope Medtronic is good in improving their record of errors here, and this helps from harming people. Thanks for the recall update.
