Nipro initiates voluntary recall

Friday, January 3, 2014

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Nipro Diagnostics has initiated a voluntary recall and replacement of a limited number of TRUEbalance and TRUEtrack blood glucose meters. The company has determined that certain meters distributed in the United States have an incorrect factory-set unit of measure that displays the result in mmol/L rather than mg/dL. If a user didn’t notice the incorrect unit of measure, it is possible that the result could be read as lower than expected. The recall affects 501 TRUEbalance and 105 TRUEtrack meters distributed from September 2008 to May 2013. Nipro advises users to call Stericycle at 1-866-236-4518 to determine whether or not their meter is affected.
