I just received another letter from Abbott about FreeStyle Lite test strip.

FreeStyle Lite Test Strip Lot Number 0822524.
Recently, it has come to our attention that the FreeStyle Lite test strip lot number mentioned above may have a potential to generate low blood glucose readings. This issue only affects the above FreeStyle Test Strip Lot Number when used with FreeStyle Freedom Lite and FreeStyle Lite Blood Glucose Meters.

Please check the lot number on the test strip carton or vial to see if your strips are from the lot number mentioned above. If the test strips are from the affected lot, please discontinue use, discard the test strips and call Abbott Diabetes Care Customer Care at 1-888-466-0071. The ADC representative will arrange to have replacement test strips sent at no charge.

If you have any further questions, please call Abbott Diabetes Care Customer Care at 1-888-466-0071 so we can help you with your questions.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank you for your continued support of Abbott Diabetes Care and the FreeStyle product line.

Please check the lot number on the test strips. The lot number appears on the outside of the test strip box and on the label of the test strip vial.
