(CNN)Medtronic has recalled some of its insulin pumps

(CNN)Medtronic has recalled some of its insulin pumps after injuries and one death were reported due to the device malfunctioning, according to a US Food and Drug Administration announcement on February 12, 2020. 

The FDA identified it as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. Insulin pumps are small devices that can deliver insulin and help diabetes patients reach desired blood glucose levels as part of their management of the disease.  Medtronic has recalled certain MiniMed 600 Series insulin pumps for delivering incorrect insulin dosing due to a missing or broken retainer ring, which helps lock the insulin cartridge in place in the pump's reservoir compartment, the FDA announcement said. The recall includes about 322,000 devices.
