Safety Alerts & Recalls

What does this mean?

Since using these recalled Accusure Insulin Syringes may make the administration of insulin more difficult and could cause you to receive an incorrect dose of insulin, this recall should be taken seriously. Look at your syringes to see if they are Accusure Insulin Syringes and find the "lot" number printed on the box or packaging. You can find the lot number on the white paper backing of each individual syringe. If your syringes are Accusure Insulin Syringes and have a lot number that matches lot number 6JCB1 or 7CPT1, please stop using them and contact Qualitest at 1-800-444-4011 for product replacement instructions. If you are not sure who has made your syringes, or cannot find a "lot" number, please take your syringes and packaging to your pharmacist for them to check.
