i post the whole thing from NYT since otherwise you have to sign up to read (but i do recommend signing up):

CHICAGO (Reuters) — The medical device maker, Medtronic, said Friday that it was recalling specific lots of its Paradigm Quick Set infusion sets that are used with Minimed Paradign insulin pumps because they may not work properly.
The company said in a statement that it had recently discovered that about 60,000, or 2 percent of the infusion sets of “lot 8”, may not allow the insulin pump to vent air pressure properly.

Medtronic said it was working with the Food and Drug Administration to resolve the issue and would replace the recalled infusion sets.

An infusion set is a thin plastic tube used to deliver insulin from an insulin pump to a diabetes patient, and is typically replaced by the patient every 3 days.

Affected infusion sets are reference numbers MMT-396, MMT-397, MMT-398 and MMT-399 with lot numbers starting with the number “8.”
