360 Million Blood Glucose Test Strips Recalled — Physician’s First Watch
360 Million Blood Glucose Test Strips Recalled
Abbott Diabetes Care has recalled hundreds of lots of glucose test strips because they may not absorb enough blood and therefore incorrectly provide low blood glucose results. This failure could potentially cause patients to attempt to raise their blood glucose levels or neglect to treat high blood glucose.
The strips are sold under the following brands: Precision Xceed Pro, Precision Xtra, Precision Point of Care, MediSense Optium, Optium, OptiumEZ, and ReliOn Ultima. The manufacturer estimates that up to 359 million test strips may be included in the recall.
