Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Blood Glucose Test Strips are subject to this recall:

  • TRUEresult Blood Glucose Monitoring System Kits with a batch number of KS1741 and an expiry date of 25/06/2018.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, some of the test strips from the affected batch may have been contained within an open test strip vial. Being exposed to the outside environment can affect test strip performance and lead to false low readings. If this occurs, the patient could experience undetected hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar), which may lead to improper treatment. Treatment based on false low readings can raise blood sugar levels further and lead to hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) that may require medical intervention.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Test Strips, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
