LifeScan is initiating a voluntary recall and replacement for all of its OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meters in the U.S.
This recall is due to the product’s lack of appropriate warning at extremely high blood glucose levels of >1,024mg/dL. The product’s shutdown without warning can potentially lead to a delayed diagnosis or incorrect treatment of extreme hyperglycemia, which can result in potentially serious health risk or fatality.
Notifications are being sent to all registered users, healthcare professionals, pharmacies, and distributors wherever these products are sold. Patients who are using the OneTouch Verio IQ monitor can make arrangements to receive a replacement meter at no charge.
