What does this mean?

Since using these recalled GlucoPro Insulin Syringes may make the administration of insulin more difficult and could cause you to receive an incorrect dose of insulin, this recall should be taken seriously. If you use insulin syringes, look at your syringes to see if they are GlucoPro Insulin Syringes and find the product code and/or lot number printed on the box or packaging. If your syringes are GlucoPro Insulin Syringes and have a lot number that matches one of the lots listed in the recall, please stop using them and return them for a refund at the store where you bought them. If you are not sure who has made your syringes, or cannot find a "lot" number, please take your syringes and packaging to your pharmacist for them to check.
