Recall ReasonThe Lactobacillus acidophilus negative control (item 0243 single KWIK-STIK) contained in the 8164 Cepheid Xpert GBS QC Set and 8165 Cepheid Smart GBS QC Set was found to test positive for Group B Streptococcus (GBS) in some cases. This causes a failure when used as a quality control for the Cepheid Xpert GBS and Cepheid Smart GBS systems. The failure of the quality control test causes a disruption for the testing laboratory which may result in repeated testing or the need for alternative test methods. This recall is applicable to the 8164 and 8165 sets only.
