"Abbott Laboratories is recalling up to 359 million testing strips used by diabetics because they can give falsely low blood sugar readings, the Food and Drug Administration said yesterday. The testing strips are used to help diabetes patients check their blood sugar levels. Patients receiving inaccurately low measurements could try to raise their blood sugar levels unnecessarily or fail to detect dangerously high blood sugar levels. The FDA said the problems are caused by a defect that limits the amount of blood absorbed by each strip." (12/23/10)
