Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Urine Pregnancy Tests are subject to this recall:

  • Mums The One One Step hCG Urine Pregnancy Tests, batch number: 20151106. No UPC was listed with this recall.

According to the ACCC, Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (“TGA”) testing of The One One-Step hCG Urine Pregnancy Tests from the affected batch found these Urine Pregnancy Tests do not meet a claim made in the product documentation.

Specifically, the tests failed to detect Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (“hCG”) at concentrations of 10 mIU/mL, 25 mIU/mL and 50 mIU/mL levels, indicators of pregnancy.

This operational failure creates the risk of false negative results, meaning a pregnant woman may not seek appropriate prenatal healthcare advice and support as early as she might otherwise, and may continue with behaviours that could adversely affect foetal development, such as smoking and/or consuming alcohol.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Urine Pregnancy Tests, please do not use them or rely on their results. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund, use an alternate Test Kit with a different batch number or arrange for a test through your physician.

Please note: other Pregnancy Test Kits have been recalled for the same reason, specifically possible operational failure and false negative results. To see all notifications related to this issue, please search for “pregnancy test” using the Search Box at the top of this page.
