Diabetes Test Strips Recall, 2013 – Lot Numbers, Details

Diabetes test strips and monitoring kits recalledLast week the FDA, along with manufacturer Nova Diabetes Care, announced a voluntary recall of 62 million glucose test strips and meter kits.

The test strips and meter kits are used to measure blood sugar levels.

According to Nova Diabetes Care, the recalled items are sold under the names Nova Max Blood Glucose Test Strips or Nova Max Plus Blood Glucose Monitoring System.

The manufacturer states on their website that:

The manufacturer also said they will replace the affected products at no charge.
