Medtronic Recalls Guardian Connect App After Data Upload Disruptions

FDA’s medical device recalls website has been updated with a new recall alert regarding the Medtronic Guardian Connect CGM app. According to the FDA website, the recall is based on a Medtronic CareLink Personal website software update which resulted in the iOS app not automatically uploading its data to the website. Of note, the Guardian Connect app is compatible with both iOS and Android, though the recall only mentioned iOS issues. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the Guardian Connect app recall and what it could mean for Medtronic and CGM-competitors Dexcom and Abbott.
