Johannesburg - The recall of about 500 000 HIV testing kits was a precaution that should not deter South Africans from undergoing HIV tests, experts and government officials said on Monday.

Reports that some HIV testing kits in South Africa were from a company whose products had been flagged should be seen in context, said SA National Aids Council deputy chairperson Mark Heywood.

"It's still safe to take an HIV test," he said.

Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said the 500 000 kits had been recalled only as a "precaution".
