Diabetes strip recall

People with diabetes are advised to stop using and return specific lots of Accu-Chek Aviva and Accu-Chek Performa test strips following a recent recall by the manufacturer, the United Kingdom's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has said. Accu-Chek Inform II test strips have also been recalled but are supplied in the UK by Roche for professional use only. The test strips may give increased strip error messages prior to dosing with blood and in some cases may give falsely high or low readings which may be hard to detect, the MHRA said.
