Nova Max Glucose Test Strips: Recall
MedSun: Newsletter #87, August 2013

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

The company has recently determined that some of the blood glucose test strips contained within the affected Nova Max Glucose Test Strip lots and Nova Max Plus glucose meter kits may report a false, abnormally high blood glucose result. 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.
