On March 13, 2014, David C. Rash P.A., the Law Offices fo Wolf and Pravato and Kaplan & Miller filed a FreeStyle® Blood Glucose Test Strip lawsuit against Abbott Laboratories Inc., Abbott Diabetes Care Inc. and Abbott Ireland Diabetes Care because they betrayed us by choosing to break the medical device safety rules that protect consumers from serious medical complications and possible death, as well as economic harms.
The lawsuit is the first in the country to be filed following an urgent Class I Recall of defective FreeStyle® Blood Glucose Test Strips and FreeStyle® Lite Blood Glucose Test Strips that may cause erroneously low readings when used with the FreeStyle® Blood Glucose Meter, FreeStyle® Flas Blood Glucose Meter or the Insulet OmniPod® Insulin Management System.
A Class I Recall is reserved only for situations in which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration determines "there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death."
If you or a loved one used FreeStyle® Blood Glucose Strips or FreeStyle® Lite Blood Glucose Strips with a FreeStyle® Blood Glucose Meter, FreeStyle® Flash Blood Glucose Meter or Insulet OmniPod® Insulin Management System, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to understand your rights. David C. Rash P.A. is currently leading the legal team pursuing claims on behalf of individuals affected by the defective test strips.
