DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 11 AM

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 11 AM for nearly every county in West Michigan save for our Indiana bordering counties of Berrien, Cass, St. Joe, and Branch.  It doesn't mean it won't be foggy there!  The combination of yesterday evening's rainfall, light winds while you were sleeping, and our unusually cool airmass is a near perfect recipe for visibilities under a mile and perhaps as low as 1/4 mile.  This is enough to change how you drive.  Please keep it safe this morning, and slow it down if you can.  Stay with wwmt.com for your weather!

Medical recall of Diabetes blood sugar tester story image
ABBOTT PARK, Ill. (AP) - Abbott Laboratories is recalling its FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Meters after finding that they display and store incorrect test results for dangerously high blood sugar levels.
   
The Abbott Park, Ill., company says the meters will display and store readings for blood glucose levels of 1,024 milligrams per deciliter or higher at much lower levels. That's an extremely high and rare level that requires immediate medical attention.
   
The inaccurate readings can lead to a delay in identifying the problem or incorrect treatment. Abbott says that can lead to serious injury or death.
   
Abbott says customers with the meter should contact its diabetes care customer service or download a software update that resolves the issue.
   
Johnson & Johnson announced a similar recall last month for several types of its blood glucose meters.
