    The letter I received says:
    What should I do if we have unused cartridges from the lots listed above? Set them aside for return to Animas. We will be sending instructions and materials to return these cartridges.
    So – maybe don’t throw them out until you’re told the procedure.
    And yup, I have five boxes of the recalled cartridges.

    Thanks for the more indepth info! Someone had posted a brief discussion on Tudiabetes which made me question the validity of the claim – and as always – I’m always needing more valid proof then just a few words. I did contact Animas Canada as well yesterday – since I’d not seen anything reported at FDA website or Animas USA – so many thanks!!!

    Colleen – weren’t you reporting that you were having some wacky BG’s? So maybe this has been the problem.

    I have 3 boxes of recalled cartridges. Just got off the phone w/ TERRIBLE customer (non)service @ the Animas Cartridge Replacement Center. They sent me 1 replacement box last week, told me to contact Edgepark Medical (my distributer) to get the other 2 boxes replaced. Edgepark just told me they are “not allowed” to do anything but give out the Animas recall phone #. Animas then told me they cannot help me either, have to ask Edgepark. When I asked to speak w/ a supervisor at Animas, the rep said “we have no supervisors on the floor right now, they’re all busy and no one is in charge.” SCARY. I’m more than a little peeved and unsure what to do next–maybe call the regular Animas customer service # and complain loudly. I’ve never had bad experience w/ either Animas or Edgepark before. Now they’re both pointing the finger at the other and saying “not me!” Completely frustrating, to say the least.

    Update: Just got a call back from Animas, apologizing for and documenting my terrible (non)customer service experience w/ their Cartridge Replacement Center this AM. MUCH better response this time. The supervisor who called me back told me what to expect, then had me wait while she told the customer service rep what to tell me, then connected me with the customer service rep who very politely and helpfully placed my request. She also told me what to do if anything goes wrong and I don’t get the right # of replacement cartridges in the next 7 days. I feel much better after this follow-up.
