LifeScan Recall of OneTouch Sure Step Test Strips

Posted Feb 26 2010 1:03pm
Never heard of Sure Step? Me neither! Apparently, In 2006 LifeScan stopped selling OneTouch SureStep Meters in the U.S. but continued to provide test strips.

 from LifeScan's official Press Relase: 

There is a voluntary recall in the United States of eight lots of OneTouch® SureStep® Test Strips, used by people with diabetes to measure their blood glucose levels at home. The test strips are being recalled because they may provide falsely low glucose results when the glucose level is higher than 400 mg/dL.

The eight lots of consumer OneTouch SureStep Test Strips being recalled are:

Recalled Lot Size Description
# 2969251 100-ct OneTouch SureStep

Lot #'s are located on the outer carton and test strip vial.

Patients with test strips from the recalled lots are asked to call LifeScan at 800 574-6139 between 5:00 am and 7:00 pm Pacific Time, seven days a week or visit to request replacement product. Replacement product will be shipped immediately and provided free of charge.
