FDA issues warning letter to Abbott Diabetes Care manufacturing plant

BY Michael Johnsen

ROCKVILLE, Md. The Food and Drug Administration earlier this week posted a July 2 warning letter addressing quality concerns at an Abbott Diabetes Care manufacturing plant.

The warning letter outlined some of the specific violations of good manufacturing practices for the manufacturer of the FreeStyle blood glucose meter, including not following through on reports concerning empty blister packs being produced on the Noack Blister Packer at one of Abbott’s establishments. Similarly, an exception report initiated on April 8, 2008, for scratches on FreeStyle Lite strips was closed with no corrective action or effectiveness check, the agency stated.

Abbott is working with the FDA to address the agency’s concerns.
