Manufacturers classify events differently

In continuing to analyze the adverse event database – this time for continuous glucose monitors (CGM), I noticed something very strange. There are two major manufacturers each with their latest product. This is the result. To recall, events are classified as either M=malfunction, IN=injury, or D=death.

Manufacturer Percent events classified as injury
A 94%
B 0.2%

But the text for these events is similar. How can this be?
