Nationwide recall issued for rapid COVID-19 test kits

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recalled more than 50,000 COVID-19 rapid antigen tests nationwide. It involves tests from the company Universal Meditech, Inc. The brand is Skippack Medical Lab and they come in green boxes.

There is concern that the test could return inaccurate results because the FDA has not performed the appropriate performance evaluation.

The recalled tests were manufactured from October 2021 to December 2021 and distributed in January 2022.
