The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued recalls for specific lot numbers of the Celltrion DiaTrust™ COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test:

FDA issued two Class 1 Device Recalls, the most serious type of recall, for the Celltrion DiaTrust™ COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test, Reference Number CT-P60 D-2 02. FDA initially authorized this test on April 16, 2021 for use at the point-of-care (POC) such as health clinics and congregate settings.

Class 1 Device Recall for Celltrion DiaTrust™ COVID-19 Ag Rapid TestLot Number COVGCCM0008

Tests with this lot number were placed on hold in September 2021 due to reports of false positive and false negative results.

Research Use Only (RUO) kits with these lot numbers were erroneously shipped to customers unlikely to use them for RUO purposes. The firm provided a letter assuring distributors that RUO tests could be used for clinical diagnosis.

FDA has also issued a Class 2 Device Recall:

Test kits with these lot numbers have an incorrect expiration date or no expiration date.
