MiniMed Remote Controller MMT-503 used with MiniMed 508 Insulin Pump or Paradigm Pumps
Product code: MMT-503
ARTG: 128416 (Medtronic Australasia Pty Ltd - Remote control - Cancelled)
Why the product is recalled
An unauthorised individual in close proximity to an insulin pump user could potentially copy the wireless RF signals from the user’s remote controller and play those back later to deliver an additional bolus of insulin to the pump user or to suspend insulin delivery.
What the hazards are to consumers
If additional insulin is delivered beyond the user’s insulin requirements, this could lead to hypoglycaemia, or hyperglycaemia if insulin delivery is suspended.
What consumers should do
Remote controller users are advised to immediately stop using and disconnect the remote controller, disable the remote feature, and return the remote controller to Medtronic.
