UPDATE: Nova Max Blood Glucose Test Strips Recalled

The FDA has announced a Class 1 recall of 21 lots of Nova Max Blood Glucose Test Strips. The test strips were manufactured from December 2011 until April 2013 and sold in stores, online, and in hospitals. The FDA believes that the products were contaminated with a chemical during manufacturing.

Approximately 62 million of the following blood-sugar test strips were recalled:

  • Nova Max Blood Glucose Test Strips
  • Max Plus Glucose Meter Kits

FDA Safety Warning for Defective Blood Sugar Test Strips

The FDA stated the following reason for the test-strip recall:

“The test strips under recall may report a false, abnormally high blood glucose result.  Under certain conditions, a false, abnormally high blood glucose level could result in an insulin dosing error, requiring the user to seek immediate medical attention.”

What Should I Do?

Nova Diabetes Care announced a Nova Max Glucose Test Strip Recall on July 26, 2013. They recommended that customers who use, distribute, or sell the products should immediately stop using or distributing the test strips.

For patients who must use the test strips while awaiting replacements, Nova Care recommends performing a quality control solution test to check that the strips are functioning properly. If the strips are not working or the results are inconsistent with the patient’s symptoms or history, Nova Care recommends that customers contact their doctor.
