Lost my Pod!

Omnipod sent me a replacement pod and asked that I return the failed screamer. They sent packing materials and instructions to return the pod I reported. Whoops! Can not find the former screamer to send back. Is this a big deal? Does OP send out a missing pod goon squad or can I just relax?Thanks.See More
