Product recall for Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pumps

Consumers and health professionals are advised that Roche Diagnostic Australia, in consultation with the TGA, is notifying users of Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pumps with serial numbers between 10171897 and 10281629 of a potential fault that may prevent treatment.

Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pumps deliver continuous doses of insulin to diabetic patients.

In a small percentage of Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pumps, a faulty component in the vibration alarm may generate an error message ('E7: ELECTRONIC ERROR') and an audible signal at pump start up. If this occurs, it will prevent the pump from operating.

Roche Diagnostic Australia will recall affected Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pumps that repeatedly display the 'E7: ELECTRONIC ERROR' error message and provide replacements.

Roche Diagnostic Australia advises that the issue affects less than 0.5% of pumps and does not affect new pumps with product serial numbers from 10281630 onwards. You can view the attached details here.
