A CONSUMER level recall has
been announced for Life Scan One
Touch Verio Blood Glucose
Monitoring Systems, with the TGA
warning that in some cases patients
may not get a blood glucose result.
The TGA says that as of 20 May
the manufacturer had received 186
complaints - almost all from
Australia - about repeated ‘error 2’
warning messages when the selftesting
systems are used in
conditions of high temperature
The products are supplied locally
by Johnson and Johnson Medical,
which has today advertised the
recall in all States and Territories.
Apparently there’s a problem
caused by contamination occurring
across the Strip Port Connector pins
of the meter, due to the use of
incorrect solder wire.
The recalled meters were made
between Aug-Dec 2010, and
patients using the Life Scan One
Touch Verio meters are advised to
call 1800 543 372 for more info.
Affected meters will be replaced
with a working model at no cost.The above article was sent to subscribers in Pharmacy Daily's issue from 17 Jun 11 To see the full newsletter, see the embedded issue below or CLICK HERE to download Pharmacy Daily from 17 Jun 11
