The FDA has issued alerts on Medtronic's 600-series MiniMed insulin pumps to warn patients that the devices' keypad buttons could temporarily become "unresponsive" when air pressure changes quickly, which normally happens during flight takeoff and landing. The alerts, classified as a class II recall by the FDA, apply to the MiniMed 620G, 630G, 640G and 670G models.
