Class 1 Recall Issued On Diabetic Blood Glucose Meter

One Touch Verio | The Maher Law Firm | Frank Eidson AttorneyA class 1 recall was issued on the LifeScan, Inc. OneTouch Verio IQ Blood Glucose Meter for failure to provide a warning at high glucose levels.

A glucose meter is a medical device used to determine the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood.  It helps people with diabetes mellitus or hypoglycemia monitor the level of glucose in their blood.  If a person is alerted their blood glucose level is extremely high, they should call their health care professional.  However, the OneTouch Verio IQ Blood Glucose Meter has been turning off instead of alerting the user.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

At extremely high blood glucose levels of 1024 mg/dL and above, the OneTouch Verio IQ Meter will turn off instead of displaying the message “EXTREME HIGH GLUCOSE above 600 mg/dL” as intended. When turned back on, the meter enters the “Set-Up” mode and requires the user to confirm the date and time settings before being able to test again. However, if the glucose level is still measuring1024 mg/dL or above when testing, the meter will shut down again.
