Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Blood Glucose Meters are subject to this recall:

  • All Accu-Chek Mobile Blood Glucose Meters

According to the ACCC, the antibiotic Ceftriaxone can interfere with the way in which the Accu-Chek Mobile Blood Glucose Meters function and this may lead to incorrectly low blood glucose readings. Ceftriaxone is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of common infections. If an incorrect blood glucose reading is shown it may pose a health and/or safety hazard to the user.

Consumers who are using the Accu-Chek Mobile meter and who are undergoing treatment with Ceftriaxone are advised to seek advice from a health professional. An alternative blood glucose monitoring system should be used for the duration of treatment with Ceftriaxone at no charge.
