GenStrip Blood Glucose Test Strips Recalled 

WebMD News from HealthDay

April 29, 2014 -- GenStrip Blood Glucose Test Strips are being recalled because they may report incorrect blood sugar levels, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday.

The strips are made by Shasta Technologies LLC. During a recent inspection of the company, the FDA found numerous violations of federal quality control regulations, the agency said in a news release.

The strips are advertised for use with the LifeScan OneTouch family of glucose monitors, which includes Ultra, Ultra 2 and Ultra Mini, the FDA said.

Anyone with the recalled glucose test strips should stop using them and switch to other strips meant to be used with the LifeScan OneTouch family of glucose meters, the FDA advised.
