A heads up for some of us older people.    ;D

WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that Abbott Laboratories is recalling up to 359 million testing strips used by diabetics because they can give falsely low blood sugar readings

North Chicago-based Abbott is recalling 359 lots marketed under a half-dozen brand names, including: Precision Xceed Pro, Precision Xtra, Medisense Optium, Optium, OptiumEZ and ReliOn Ultima.

Abbott said ReliOn Ultima test strips are used with the ReliOn Ultima blood glucose monitoring system and that system is not being recalled.
