DETROIT (WWJ) – Blood Glucose test strip manufacturer Abbot is voluntarily recalling FreeStyle and FreeStyle Lite test strips.

The company says the test strips may produce erroneously low blood glucose results when used with the “FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meters” and “FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meters” made in 2010 or before.

The affected test strips are from lots that hold expiration dates from between May 2014 and March 2015, and can be identified as follows:

Lot Numbers -
1281732 1363321 1367917
1283345 1365056 1373262
1283603 1365920 1374907
1285007 1365934 1366515
1366111 1366337 1366006
1363015 1366347 1350414
1363109 1365921

The company is notifying healthcare professionals, pharmacies, distributors and customers about the recall. Customers are asked to call Abbott’s diabetes care customer service at 1-888-736-9869 for a replacement of the affected test strips at no charge.
