Reason

The MiniMed 600 Series insulin pump uses an AA battery for power. Recently, manufacturer identified a batch of pumps with an issue on the battery connection that does not meet quality specifications. If power is interrupted on a patient's insulin pump, then insulin is suspended which may lead to hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). There have been no reported complaints from customers as a result of this issue
