Novo Nordisk Recalls Cartridge Holders In Certain Novopen Echo® Insulin Delivery Devices Due to Potential Health Risks
07/06/2017 02:10 PM EDT
Novo Nordisk is initiating a recall of insulin cartridge holders used in a small number of NovoPen Echo® batches because they may crack or break if exposed to certain chemicals, like certain cleaning agents. NovoPen Echo® is used for insulin treatment by people with diabetes. Using a device with a cracked/broken cartridge holder may result in the device delivering a reduced dose of insulin which could potentially lead to high blood sugar. Novo Nordisk believes the risk of experiencing high blood sugar when using a device with an affected cartridge holder is low.
