(Washington-AP) -- A California manufacturer is recalling more than 160-thousand insulin infusion kits.

Medtronic MiniMed says problems with the kits may have caused 200 diabetics to be hospitalized for elevated blood-sugar levels.

Diabetics who use the Paradigm Quick-set Plus brand should contact the company immediately to exchange any unused infusion set for a free replacement.

The number is 1-800-MINIMED.
