The FDA issued an update on April 14, regarding a previous recall of Freestyle and Freestyle Flash Blood Glucose Meters, by Abbott, that classified it as Class I. The reason for the recall was that, when used with the Abbott FreeStyle test strips, the specific meters may produce mistakenly low blood glucose results.

As the FDA notes, symptoms of high blood sugar include excessive thirst, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, excessive urination, blurred vision, and weakness. The recall includes the OmniPod Insulin Management System with the built-in FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter as well.

According to the original announcement “If the only meter available to you is an affected meter, continue to test your blood glucose as recommend by your doctor while you wait for your replacement meter. When using an affected meter, follow the precautions and recommendations in the press release.” And the FDA announcement continues “If you have access to an alternative glucose meter, immediately discontinue use of the affected meter and take the necessary steps to continue to monitor your blood sugar with the alternative meter.”
