Recall for certain OneTouch Verio meters

LifeScan, Inc., the manufacturer of OneTouch Verio Meters, is initiating a voluntary recall and replacement of its OneTouch Verio Pro, OneTouch Verio IQ, and OneTouch Verio Pro+ blood glucose meters in the UK and Ireland, effective immediately.

The meters are being recalled and replaced because at extremely high blood glucose levels of 56.8 mmol/L and above, the meters do not operate as intended. This could lead to incorrect treatment or delay proper treatment of

extreme hyperglycemia.

While the likelihood of experiencing an extremely high blood glucose level of 56.8 mmol/L or higher is rare, when such a blood glucose level occurs, it is a serious health risk requiring immediate medical attention.

“The safety of our patients is our highest priority,” said Michael Pfeifer, M.D., LifeScan’s Chief Medical Officer, “so we have taken corrective action. We regret any difficulties these actions may cause; however, we will always err on the side of caution and act in the best interests of our patients.”

This recall affects the following meters:

OneTouch VerioIQ Meter

OneTouch Verio Pro Meter

OneTouch Verio Pro+ Meter
