Johnson & Johnson’s Animas Unit Recalls Leaking Insulin Cartridges

Bloomberg News reported, “Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)’s Animas unit recalled leaking insulin cartridges, saying they may cause pumps to deliver too little medicine to patients.” In a letter dated Feb. 24, the company notified patients, “saying the recall affects 2-milliliter cartridges shipped between Nov. 30 and Jan. 4.”

MedPage Today reported, “Leaks would prevent patients from receiving the full dose of insulin, which can lead to high blood sugar, diabetic ketoacidosis, or possibly death, a statement from Animas said.” And, should the cartridge leak, “the pump’s alarm may not warn of a blockage in the infusion set, should one occur, the company statement said.” MedPage Today also emphasized that the recall notice was only for the cartridges, not for the insulin pumps themselves.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
