Medical Device Alert: Insulin pens: NovoPen Echo and NovoPen 5 (certain batches)

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a medical device alert advising recall and replacement of certain batches of NovoPen Echo and NovoPen 5 insulin pens. This is due to a risk of hyperglycaemia as the cartridge holder can become weakened if it is exposed to certain household chemicals. 

Further details of the alert, the affected batches and action to take are available on the MHRA website.
