The FDA slapped Accutron's recall of 206 flowmeters with Class I status, the agency's designation for the most serious type of recall.

The agency warned that the flowmeters, which the company recalled earlier this month over leaking nitrous oxide, could lead to temporary or permanent brain damage or death.
