Animas recalling insulin cartridges

March 8, 2011 2:18:08 PM PST
Johnson and Johnson's Animas unit sent a letter to patients last month that it found some of the cartridges used to deliver insulin can leak and therefore result in the delivery of less insulin than intended.

There's concern because insufficient insulin can cause high blood sugar and a diabetic condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis, which can be fatal.

The lot numbers begin with the letter B and the first four numbers of each are 2015. The lots in question end with either 75, 76, 81, 82 or 83.
