    Covid tests for Home (JUNK )

    This is sad , Throw our tax dollars away !!!!

    We gave these guys $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    And the tests are being pulled Back .

    The Food and Drug Administration announced that they are recalling around 2 million at-home COVID-19 tests produced by Australian biotech company Ellume due to a high number of false positive results.

    Ellume initially announced a voluntary recall of some of their rapid COVID-19 tests in October, but Wednesday the FDA said that they had found additional lots of the testing kits that were also showing false positives, and initiated "the most serious type" of their recall.

    The FDA said that the tests manufactured between Feb. 24 and Aug. 11 "have higher-than-acceptable false positive test results." The federal agency said there have been 35 reported false positives so far, which could lead to delayed diagnosis or treatment of a person's actual illness and being incorrectly treated for COVID-19. The errors in the tests have not affected any negative results, they said.

    "The FDA is continuing to work with Ellume to assess the company's corrective actions, such as additional manufacturing checks and other corrective steps, to address the reason for the manufacturing issue, and to help ensure that it is resolved and will not recur," the agency said.

    The Biden administration awarded Ellume $231.8 million in February to produce more at-home COVID-19 tests for distribution in the US.
