J&J’s Animas Recalls Five Lots of Leaking Insulin Cartridges

March 8 (Bloomberg) -- Johnson & Johnson’s Animas unit recalled leaking insulin cartridges, saying they may cause pumps to deliver too little medicine to patients.

Animas notified patients of the problem in a Feb. 24 letter, saying the recall affects 2-milliliter cartridges shipped between Nov. 30 and Jan. 4. A leaking cartridge may prevent an insulin pump from sounding an alert over blockages in the device’s infusion system, the letter said.

Animas said it learned of “several cases” of leaking insulin and that any faulty cartridges would be replaced free of charge. The recall covers five lots of cartridges.

J&J is based in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
