Just thought I would pass this along.
Failure To Provide A Warning At Extremely High Blood Glucose Levels
We have recently determined that at extremely high blood glucose levels of 56.8 mmol/L and above, the OneTouch® Verio®IQ Meter will turn off instead of displaying the message “EXTREME HIGH GLUCOSE (above 33.3 mmol/L)” as intended. When turned back on, the meter enters Set-Up mode and requires the user to confirm the date and time settings before being able to test again. However, if your glucose level is still 56.8 mmol/L or above when testing, the meter will shut down again.
The likelihood of experiencing extremely high blood glucose levels of 56.8 mmol/L and above is remote. However, when they occur, they are a serious health risk and require immediate medical attention. Because the OneTouch® Verio®IQ Meter does not provide the “EXTREME HIGH GLUCOSE (above 33.3 mmol/L)” message at glucose levels of 56.8 mmol/L and above, there may be a delay in the diagnosis and treatment of extreme hyperglycemia, or incorrect treatment may be given. This could lead to serious injury. As a result, we have decided to replace all OneTouch® Verio®IQ Meters at no charge.
Thanks for posting this Dwayne
Why would I think , the same thing happened last year or in 2011 ??? I had received the meter as a free one and the meter was recalled ...
The topice was mentioned on TV last night , CTV National News , Lisa Laflamme ...it was mentioned, that a previous recall had occured ...see my earlier post response
