Re: [IP] Animas 2020 paint question

My son has the silver 2020. The first pump was replaced by Animas 
because the paint came off. It wasn't just in one place, the entire body 
of the pump was down to the grey plastic underneath. My son is pretty 
careful with his pump and it wasn't due to abuse. We didn't ask Animas 
to replace it because of the paint issue, we had called in due to an 
alarm and she asked if we had any questions or issues, I asked the rep 
about the paint and she immediately offered a new pump and said that the 
paint should not be coming off.
