Abbott Laboratories is recalling its FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Meters after finding that they display and store incorrect test results for dangerously high blood sugar levels. It said the meters will display and store readings for blood glucose levels of 1,024 milligrams per deciliter or higher at much lower levels. That’s an extremely high and rare level that requires immediate medical attention. Inaccurate readings can lead to a delay in identifying the problem.
