Here's a recall I got in my email. I had to immediately let you all know.

www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyalertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm271

I sure hope none of you have this one.

love and hugs

Thanks Loretta...this is my pump, so will talk to my doctor and see if I have cause for concern.

You didn't post the complete link - the actual page is HERE

It just warns patients with these pumps - The Synchromed II - 8637 - to carry their ID cards at all times and to contact their physicians immediately if they hear their pump alarm or have any return of symptoms.

Neither one of our links are working. I'll go try again.

Your welcome Laura. I checked your link and it didn't work either, so I redid it again and checked it. It now works. It thought someone might want to read the whole thing.

hugs

I've fixed my link - and if anyone else has a Synchromed II and wants to check their pump serial number, there is a form HERE for doing so.
