OneTouch SureStep Test Strips (LifeScan): Recall
MedSun: Newsletter #47, April 2010

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

LifeScan and FDA notified healthcare professionals of a voluntary recall 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. It is important that patients with recalled test strips continue to test their blood glucose.
