By WVUA 23 Digital Reporter Kyrsten Eller
The Australian-based company, Ellume, announce that it’s pulling over 427,000 of its COVID-19 test kits. They are currently being recalled over false positive concerns.
Ellume says that some of the kits delivered false-positive results at higher rates. However, they would not say how many were false positives.
The tests were sold at major retail stores including Walmart, Target, CVS and Amazon.
According to the company, it has isolated the cause and affected customers will be notified through email or its COVID-19 home test app.
