We have been informed that Abbott are recalling some FreeStyle Libre® 2 sensors from lot KTP005061 (no other Abbot diabetes products are affected) because of concern that they may provide false high glucose readings. For example, your sensor glucose reading may be high/ out of your target range while your actual glucose levels may be below or within target range.

Action required:

  • Find out whether your sensors are affected by visiting and enter your sensor serial number/numbers.
  • If you are currently using the FreeStyle Libre® 2 system and are wearing an affected sensor, please immediately discontinue use. If you have symptoms that do not match the sensor glucose reading, or suspect your reading may be inaccurate, check the reading by conducting a fingerstick test using a blood glucose meter.
  • Abbott will send a replacement for any affected sensor(s). The affected sensor(s) needs to be returned to Abbott.

For more details, please see full safety notice.
