Diabetes Test Strip Recall | Fox 59 News – fox59.com

The company has recently determined that some of the blood glucose test strips contained within the indicated Nova Max Glucose Test Strip lots and Nova Max Plus glucose meter kits may report a false, abnormally high blood glucose result. Those who use, recommend clinically, or sell Nova Max Glucose Test Strips for blood glucose testing should immediately discontinue using or distributing glucose test strips from the recalled lots and catalog numbers.

A false abnormally high blood glucose result could, under certain conditions, result in an insulin dosing error that could lead to a serious health risk requiring immediate medical attention.

Customers can check to confirm if they have blood glucose test strips from the affected lots by visiting Voluntary Recall of Specified Lots of Nova Max® Glucose Test Strips or by contacting Nova Diabetes Care customer service at 1-800-681-7390.

No other product or lot number from Nova Diabetes Care is impacted by this recall. Customers can contact Nova Diabetes Care customer service at 1-800-681-7390 to replace their affected test strip lot or meter kit at no charge.

Customers may continue to test blood glucose using any other Nova Max Glucose Test Strip lot not indicated as part of this recall while waiting for their replacement to arrive.....snip~
