Abbott has announced it is initiating a voluntary recall of 20 lots of FreeStyle and FreeStyle Lite Blood Glucose Test Strips in the United States.

The company says these lots of test strips may produce erroneously low blood glucose results when used with both "FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter" and "FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meter" (neither of which have been in production since 2010), as well as the OmniPod Insulin Management System.

The affected test strips are from lots that have expiration dates from between May 2014 and March 2015, and can be identified as follows:

1281732    1363321    1367917
1283345    1365056    1373262
1283603    1365920    1374907
1285007    1365934    1366515
1366111    1366337    1366006
1363015    1366347    1350414
1363109    1365921

Customers are instructed to call Abbott's diabetes care customer service at 1-888-736-9869 for a replacement of the affected test strips at no charge.
