Nova Diabetes Care initiated a voluntary recall of 21 lots of the Nova Max Glucose Test Strips. Nova Max Plus glucose meter kits that include test strips from the recalled lots are also included in this voluntary recall. The company determined that some of the blood glucose test strips may report a false, abnormally high blood glucose result.
Nova Diabetes Care has notified all registered users, health care professionals, pharmacies, and distributors where the Nova Max Glucose Test Strip and Nova Max Plus glucose meter kit are recommended or sold.
Those who use, recommend clinically, or sell Nova Max Glucose Test Strips should immediately discontinue using or distributing glucose test strips from the recalled lots. (See the recall notice for a listing of recalled lots.)
Health care professionals are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.
