Mums The One T/A PregnancyShop.com.au—Mums The One One Step hCG Urine Pregnancy Test
What are the defects?
TGA testing of Mums The One one step hCG urine pregnancy tests from the affected batch found that these tests do not meet a claim made in the product documentation. Specifically, these tests failed to detect hCG at concentrations of 10 mIU/mL, 25 mIU/mL and 50 mIU/mL levels.
What are the hazards?
This creates the risk of false negative results, which means a pregnant woman may not seek pre-natal healthcare advice and support as early as possible, and may continue with behaviours that could affect foetal development, such as smoking and/or consuming alcohol.
