Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Wrong Expiration Date; The kits were labeled with Expiration/Use By dates; that exceed the expiration dates of the sterile safety lancet component of the kit.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Recall letters dated 10/6/06 were sent to the direct accounts via FedEx on the same date. The accounts were informed of incorrect Use By dates on the kits based on the lancet component of the kit, and that the lancet may not be sterile as of the printed Use By date on the kit. The letters listed the specific products and affected lot numbers shipped to the individual account, and requested them to examine their inventory for the affected product and return it via UPS to Home Access for replacement. No test results will be provided to any customer who uses the affected product after 10/31/06. Any questions were directed to 1-800-871-6046.
