  • Novo Nordisk Recalls Cartridge Holders In Certain Novopen Echo® Insulin Delivery Devices Due to Potential Health Risks

    Thursday, July 6, 2017

    Novo Nordisk is initiating a recall of insulin cartridge holders used in a small number of NovoPen Echo® batches because they may crack or break if exposed to certain chemicals, like certain cleaning agents.
