The Bayer Ascensia Contour Blood Glucose Monitoring System, Product 7152A has been recalled by Bayer Healthcare and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The reason for the recall is that the numeric display reports the wrong units of measure for Canadian users. According to the recall notice, though the monitors should display results in mmol / L format, they are instead calibrated to display in mg / dL format — a mistake that could easily lead to mis-management of blood sugar levels, potentially causing hypoglycemia.
Patients with questions regarding the recall are instructed to call Bayer Healthcare at 1-574-256-3441.
