Tipped off by consumer complaints, the US FDA has alerted the public not to use home-use diagnostic test kits marketed nationwide via the internet by Globus Media, of Montreal, Canada. The company is marketing a variety of tests, including kits for the detection of HIV, dengue fever and syphilis; those for the presence of cocaine, marijuana or amphetamines; and two pregnancy tests. The use of these products could produce false results (though there is no confirmed evidence of these) that could lead to significant adverse health consequences, the FDA said.
