Abbott Laboratories recalls up to 359 million glucose testing strips
If you have diabetes, or know someone does, you’ll want to read this.
The AP (12/22) reported, “The Food and Drug Administration says Abbott Laboratories is recalling up to 359 million testing strips used by diabetics because they can give falsely low blood sugar readings.” Because of the false results, “patients may try to raise their blood sugar levels unnecessarily or fail to detect dangerously high blood sugar levels.”
The Los Angeles Times (12/22, Zajac) reported, “The strips may not absorb enough blood quickly enough to give a proper reading, which can lead users to try to raise sugar levels unnecessarily, or to fail to treat elevated glucose levels, the company said in a statement.
