The FDA and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics notified health care professionals of the recall of a blood testing kit. The HBsAg Confirmatory Kit is used to test blood for the Hepatitis B virus. An unknown component in the diluting solution may produce Not Confirmed results for samples found to be positive with the initial test. These false negative results could result in a lack of treatment for people infected with the Hepatitis B virus. Previously reported results should be reviewed.
