(NBC) -- More than 300,000 insulin pumps have been recalled due to a potentially deadly malfunction.

Medtronic is recalling its MiniMed 600 series insulin pumps after one person died and thousands were injured from incorrect dosing.

The affected devices include the 630-G Model, distributed between September 2016 and October 2019 and the 670-G, distributed between June 2017 and August 2019.

The FDA says the pumps may have a broken or missing retainer ring, which can cause the over or under delivery of insulin.

Customers who would like more information can call Medtronic's 24-hour line at 877-585-0166.

The recall has been identified as a class one recall, which is the most serious due to potential serious injury or death.
