MPL3115A2 returning weird altitude info

Hi! We're using this pressure sensor since some time and once in a while we have units returning weird altitude information (like altitudes over 14000 meters while we are at 350 above sea level). The sensor replies to all commands, and temperature information makes sense. It's just the altitude reported that makes no sense at all. Sensor is reset once before performing readings (polling used on a time basis longer than acquire time). Same software works perfectly on other units.

 

Could they be faulty sensors? How can we check if a sensor is working well?
