Diabetes Care announced on July 26th, 2013 that it was initiating a voluntary recall of 21 lots of the Nova Max Glucose Test Strips distributed both in the USA and outside the continental USA. This includes Nova Max® Plus™ glucose meter kits that include test strips from the recalled lots. The company recently discovered that some of these blood glucose test strips may report a false, abnormally high blood glucose result. This false report could, under certain result in an insulin dosing error that could lead to a serious health risk requiring immediate medical attention.
