Recall of Some OneTouch Ultra Blood Glucose Test Strips
I just received a letter from LifeScan , the Johnson & Johnson Company that manufactures the OneTouch Ultra glucose meters and test strips, The company has launched an "Urgent Medical Device Correction" --which amounts to the same thing as a recall--of approximately 900 packages of OneTouch Ultra Test Strips.
The wrong test strips were packaged in certain lots of OneTouch Ultra Test Strips. Your test strips should be light blue with the name "OneTouch Ultra" printed on them. Like the one on the right. The strips under recall that were packaged by mistake are of a dark blue color without any writing on them. These incorrect strips will fit into your OneTouch meter, but they won't turn it on, and they won't give you any result. All of us who must purchase test strips know that they are expensive at about $1 for each strip, so you will certainly want to take advantage of the opportunity for a refund or replacement from LifeScan.
