OneTouch Ultra Test Strips recall - Lot 2829235I've seen this on the blogosphere, but just in case you've missed it.
Lifescan has announced a recall on 25-count boxes of OneTouch Ultra blood glucose test strips with a lot number of 2829235. Boxes with 50 or 100 strips are not affected. And only boxes with the lot number are of concern. The lot number is printed on the outside of the box and on the label of each test strip vial.
According to LifeScan "a very small number of vials in this lot many contain strips that could product inaccurately low (my emphasis) blood glucose test results".
If you have any of these packages you can contact LifeScan at 1-866-247-1281 to get replacement strips. While waiting for replacements they advise "do not use the OneTouch Ultra Test Strips from lot number 2829235".
