October 12, 2019


THOUSANDS OF INSULIN PUMPS ARE BEING RECALLED… AS THE F-D-A WARNS OF A HACKING RISK. MADISEN MED-TRONIC IS RECALLING ITS MINI-MED PARADIGM SERIES INSULIN PUMPS AND ITS MINI-MED 508 INSULIN PUMP. THE F-D-A WARNS SOMEONE NEARBY COULD CONNECT WIRELESSLY AND THEN POTENTIALLY HACK INTO THE DEVICES, CHANGE THE SETTINGS, AND DELIVER TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE INSULIN. HOWEVER – THE F- D-A SAID IT’S NOT AWARE OF ANYONE ACTUALLY DOING THIS. BUT IF IT’S NOT ADDRESSED, IT SAYS THE RISK TO PATIENTS IS — QUOTE — “SIGNIFICANT.” THE COMPANY SAYS IT HAS IDENTIFIED ABOUT FOUR- THOUSAND PATIENTS WHO MAY BE USING PUMPS THAT ARE VULNERABLE TO THE ISSUE… AND IS WORKING TO DETERMINE IF THERE ARE MORE.
