    Nipro Medical Corp. of Miami is recalling all GlucoPro Insulin Syringes with expiration dates before Nov. 1, 2011, not including the GlucoPro syringe for use with the Amigo insulin pump, because the needles can detach. This defect could allow the needle to get stuck in the insulin vial, be pushed backed into the syringe or stay in the skin after injection. No injuries have been reported. The needles were available nationwide, including Puerto Rico. Details: by phone at 305-599-7174, extension 249.
