500,000 COVID-19 Tests Recalled by FDA

How many nasal swabs did people ram up their noses over the past three years?

The number is likely in the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of PCR tests.

We were told the tests were safe.

We were told they would accurately detect the presence of SARS-C0V-2.

Those were all lies!

The authoritarians in the medical industrial complex hid the potential dangers of shoving these nasal swabs up your nose.

A recent FDA recall highlights the dangers of these useless tests.

The public health agency issued a “warning to consumers on Thursday to stop using a certain COVID-19 at-home test due to the potential for bacterial contamination in the product’s liquid solution.”

“Recall Notice – SD Biosensor, Inc. Requests Discontinuation of Use and Disposal of Specific Pilot™ COVID-19 At-Home Tests in the United States Due to Microbial Contamination in the Liquid Buffer Solution,” U.S. FDA Recalls tweeted.

From the FDA:

SD Biosensor, Inc. today is requesting that consumers stop using and dispose of specific Pilot COVID-19 At-Home Tests in the United States because potentially harmful bacteria were found in the tube with liquid inside (pouch 2 of the kits).

The affected tests can be identified by the lot number on the outer packaging and should be appropriately discarded. Dispose of the entire test kit in the household trash. Do not pour the liquid down the drain.

Direct exposure to the liquid in the tube through misuse or spillage could potentially lead to serious illness.

To date, no such illness has been reported. If the liquid in the tube contacts your skin and eyes, flush with large amounts of water and if irritation persists, seek medical attention.

The affected test kits were distributed by Roche Diagnostics to distributors and retailers in the U.S. Product images, lot information and follow-up actions are available at Link Disclaimer or by contacting the Roche Customer Support Center at 1-866-987-6243 and selecting option 1.

As a result, 500,000 at-home COVID-19 tests will be recalled due to the potentially harmful bacteria.

The Hill reported:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recalled more than 500,000 COVID-19 tests over concerns of them being contaminated with bacteria.

The FDA said in a release Thursday that consumers and health care providers should discard certain recalled SD Biosensor, Inc. Pilot COVID-19 At-Home Tests, which were distributed by Roche Diagnostics. The release states that the agency has “significant concerns” with the test kit’s liquid solution and direct contact with it could pose safety risks and compromise the test’s accuracy.
