. More than 2 million Ellume Covid-19 home tests recalled due to false positives « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CNN –Ellume first announced a voluntary recall of some of its rapid antigen tests in October due to an increased chance of false positives. More than 2 million tests are now included in the recall, the US Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday. This recall has been identified by the FDA as a Class I recall, “the most serious type of recall,” as “use of these tests may cause serious adverse health consequences or death.” The FDA said false positives could lead to a delayed diagnosis or treatment of the actual cause of a person’s illness; receiving unnecessary Covid-19 treatment which may have side effects.
