Thousands of insulin pumps are being recalled because of concerns the pumps could be hacked.
The recall is for the Mini-Med Paradigm series insulin pumps and its mini-med 508 insulin pump.
The maker says they will provide alternative pumps to patients.
“Patients with diabetes using these models should switch their insulin pump to models that are better equipped to protect against these potential risks,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a statement.
