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.
