FreeStyle Lite and FreeStyle Test Strips

December 3, 2013

Abbott is voluntarily recalling 20 lots of FreeStyle Lite and FreeStyle blood glucose test strips. Use of these test strips may result in erroneously low blood glucose results when used with the  FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter, the FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meter, and the OmniPod Insulin Management System.

Recalled lots have expiration dates between May 2014 and March 2015 and are listed below:

1281732
1283345
1283603
1285007
1366111
1363015
1363109
  1363321
1365056
1365920

  1367917
1373262
1374907

The recalled test strips do not affect blood glucose results when used with FreeStyle Freedom Blood Glucose Meter, FreeStyle Freedom Lite Blood Glucose Meter, and FreeStyle Lite Blood Glucose Meter. The FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Meter is also unaffected as it uses different test strips. Direct patients with affected lots and devices to call Abbott’s customer service (1-888-736-9869) for free test strip replacement.
