FDA warns against using home HIV tests sold on the Internet

FDA warns against using home HIV tests sold on the Internet

The Food and Drug Administration this week issued a warning against using home HIV antibody, syphilis, illegal drugs, and pregnancy tests sold on the Internet by Canadian company Globus Media. The FDA has not approved any of the products sold by the Montreal-based company, and "consumers cannot know with any degree of certainty that the test results are correct," says an FDA release. The agency learned the test kits were being illegally sold to U.S. consumers when it heard a complaint from buyers of the HIV test kits who received several false-positive test results. The kits are being sold online at www.htkit.com, according to the FDA.
