A voluntary recall of certain lots of Nova Max Glucose Test Strips has occurred. It has been determined that these strips may cause a false, abnormally high blood sugar level to be reported. A falsely high blood sugar level could result in an insulin dosing error (taking too much insulin) that could lead to a serious health risk requiring immediate medical attention. If you use Nova Max Glucose Test Strips or have a Nova Max Plus Meter Kit, check to see if the test strips you have are in the affected lots listed in Appendix A. If they are, immediately stop using them.
You can receive replacement of the affected test strips at no charge to you by calling Nova Diabetes Customer Service at 1-800-681-7390 and verifying the affected Lot #s that you possess. Do not stop testing your blood sugar using non-recalled test strips.
