When used with the Abbott FreeStyle test strips, the blood glucose meters may produce mistakenly low blood glucose results.
The recall includes the FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter and the FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meter. These two meters have not been in production since 2010.
What To Do:
Contact Abbott Diabetes Care to obtain a replacement meter. If you have access to an alternative glucose meter, immediately discontinue use of the affected meter and take the necessary steps to continue to monitor your blood sugar with the alternative meter.
If the only meter available to you is an affected meter, continue to test your blood glucose as recommend by your doctor while you wait for your replacement meter. For more information, call (888) 345-5364 or go online to abbottdiabetescare.com/press-room.
