Accu-Chek Test Strips Recall

Roche has announced a voluntary recall of select lots of Accu-Chek® Aviva Plus test strips.

Roche has identified four test strip lots that are out of specification. Affected test strips show an increased potential for:

  • strip errors prior to applying a blood sample, or
  • strips not detected once inserted, or
  • in a very limited number of cases, an inaccurate result may occur, which may not be detectable.

It was found that the affected strips had cracked reagent, which may lead to the issues described above.

Rite Aid has sold the following products included in the recall:
