anybody else getting a lot more of ERROR 2 with the Ultra Blue?  last batch of 500 had about 7 bad strips...  which isn't a lot but it's a lot more than I am used ot seeing from my friends at One Touch. 

 

sadly with the old, antiquated, "that's the way we USED to do things"  one touch strips, my incidence of ERROR 2 was (use a Dean Vernon Wormer voice here:) zero point zero.

I have consistently had between 1 in 25 and 1 in 50 Er2 failures with the one touch. I have not noticed any worsening with the Blue. If you look at the vast majority of the Er2 failure test strips you will be able to actually see that the strip is bad. I consider it just bad quality control.
good, that means it's just crappy manfacturing and not an increase in my bad luck. =)

Cheers
Yes....many!! Thought it was just me. Very frustrating indeed.
I'd contact One Touch to tell them. Bet they'll send you replacment strips. The joys of new & improved:)
Oddly enough, I have never had an error 2 message in the year I have been using One Touch.
This drives me nuts too!
Me three!! LOL
Me four.
I have never seen error #2 just error #5 once in a while because the strip does not take all the blood it needs..........
