LifeScan Recall of OneTouch Sure Step Test Strips
LifeScan is recalling specific lots of OneTouch® SureStep® Test Strips due to inaccurate readings at high levels.
Never heard of Sure Step? Me neither! Apparently, In 2006 LifeScan stopped selling OneTouch SureStep Meters in the U.S. but continued to provide test strips.

from LifeScan's official Press Relase:

There is a voluntary recall in the United States of eight lots of OneTouch® SureStep® Test Strips, used by people with diabetes to measure their blood glucose levels at home. The test strips are being recalled because they may provide falsely low glucose results when the glucose level is higher than 400 mg/dL.

The eight lots of consumer OneTouch SureStep Test Strips being recalled are:

Recalled Lot Size Description
# 2969251 100-ct OneTouch SureStep
# 2969798 100-ct OneTouch SureStep
# 2982369 100-ct OneTouch SureStep
# 2983467 100-ct OneTouch SureStep
# 2969795 50-ct OneTouch SureStep
# 2982566 50-ct OneTouch SureStep
# 2969481 50-ct Medicare/Mail Order
# 2998193 50-ct Medicare/Mail Order

Lot #'s are located on the outer carton and test strip vial.

Patients with test strips from the recalled lots are asked to call LifeScan at 800 574-6139 between 5:00 am and 7:00 pm Pacific Time, seven days a week or visit www.SureStep.com to request replacement product. Replacement product will be shipped immediately and provided free of charge.

I received my recall letter in mail yesterday. Lifescan
always keeps their meter users up to date. I have
only used one touch (3yr) so I dont really have any
others to compare to. Easy to learn and good
reliable company.
