Effective April 15, 2013
On April 15th, 2013, Abbott initiated a voluntary recall for the FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Meter with an NDC number of 99073-0711-43. This voluntary, user-level recall was initiated because the FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Meter may display and store in memory an incorrect result at extremely high blood glucose levels (≥ 1,024 mg/dL).
Effective March 25, 2013
On March 25, 2013, LifeScan initiated a voluntary recall for the OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meters. This recall was initiated because OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meters will turn off instead of displaying the message “EXTREME HIGH GLUCOSE above 600 mg/dL” when blood glucose level is 1,024 mg/dL or greater. When the meter is 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 1,024 mg/dL or greater when testing, the meter will shut down again.
