Diabetic Supply of Suncoast, Inc. Recalls Advocate Redi-Code+ BMB-BA006A Blood Glucose Test Strips
Diabetic Supply of Suncoast, Inc. is recalling Advocate Redi-Code+ BMB-BA006A blood glucose test strips manufactured by a company named BroadMaster Bio-Tech Corp. These strips have been recalled because of a labeling error. There could be some confusion about which glucose meters the Redi-Code+ BMB-BA006A blood glucose test strips are supposed to be used with. In the current labeling, the name of the test strips model (BMB-BA006A) was not included.
The Advocate Redi-Code+ BMB-BA006A blood glucose test strips should only be used with the Advocate Redi-Code+ blood glucose meters with the model numbers BMB-EA001S and BMB-EA001A and manufactured by BroadMaster Bio-Tech Corp. The labeling error may lead users to believe they can use the Advocate Redi-Code+ BMB-BA006A blood glucose test strips with the Advocate Redi-Code blood glucose meters with model numbers TD-3223E, TD-4223E, TD-4223F, and TD-4276, which are manufactured by Taidoc Technology Corp. If the Advocate Redi-Code+ blood glucose test strips are used with the Taidoc meters listed here, the results could be inaccurate.
People with diabetes carefully monitor their blood glucose levels and require urgent treatment for low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) or high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). False results could lead to inappropriate or delayed treatment that could harm a patient.
