Abbott Offers Medical Alert For Their Blood Glucose Meters

September 11, 2007

Abbott is initiating a worldwide medical alert for users of its Precision Xtra, Optium, ReliOn Ultima, Rite Aid and Kroger blood glucose meters manufactured after January 31, 2007.

The company says that if the meter is dropped on a hard surface, part or all of the display screen may not work properly or may appear blank, which could result in an inability to view blood glucose test results.

Abbott says the inability to generate blood glucose results could result in significant risk for hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia. For more information you can visit the website below.
