[font face="verdana, geneva" size="2"]I've been hearing from alot of insulin pumpers lately with my blog posts on my ongoing ordeal with my current Animas 2020 pump that is one of many that is affected with what I call a "self destruct" date. [br][br]Supposably, Animas only came into knowledge of this s/w error last March 2012 - tho' from someone who I'd spoken to before at Animas Corporation (USA branch) - I was told [url=/blogs/Annas_Blog/2013/1/7]otherwise[/url] ). I'm beginning to feel like I'm in some sort of mystery show on TV - as I try to figure out - why would a company like Johnson & Johnson who values their customers (or so I thought) along with their employees (I was sold on the Animas pump due to the rep telling me what a great "family" company Johnson & Johnson was - and that they treated their customers the same way). I'm telling you, rubbing Vaseline Intensive Care on my body is beginning to look like a product, once it's finished, I won't be purchasing again and perhaps some of their other [url=http://www.jnj.com/connect/healthcare-products/]products[/url] the way I'm being treated at this point in time.[br][br]What came across my screen today - thanks to a diabetic who read my woes with my insulin pump issue - gets me very worried about what pump company is the best to stick with - if and when I decide to take up pumping again (this [url=/blogs/Annas_Blog/2012/12/22]blog[/url] explains why I went off the pump). [br][br]Read the statement below that came out on Jan 12/12 (how the heck did I miss this last year) - you'll understand my worries - and perhaps the reason why Ms. Pavis (who has been responding to all my questions over the past few months) - has been very careful with her wording to me in my situation (along with I'm sure other 2020 and PING users). [br][br][/font] [br][br][font face="verdana, geneva" size="2"]"This time it's the unit that makes insulin pumps for diabetics, Animas Corp., that's being investigated. The Food and Drug Administration has warned Animas that unless it corrects violations soon, it could face fines and other sanctions for selling faulty insulin pumps and delaying disclosures of serious injuries to patients using its OneTouch Ping and 2020 pumps."[br][br]Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/health/...n-pump-problems/[/font
