Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall was initiated after Quidel Corporation determined that a small number of QuickVue One-Step hCG Urine kits have been incorrectly packaged with QuickVue H. pylori gll cassettes inside the kit boxes. These foil pouches and test cassettes are clearly labeled as H. pylori. Nevertheless, there is a risk that customers may overlook this labeling.
