Reason for Recall:

These blood glucose test strips are counterfeit (fake) versions
of LifeScan’s products. These counterfeit test strips could give
incorrect blood glucose values, either too high or too low,
which might result in a patient taking either too much or too
little insulin. This could lead to serious injury or death.
