Important notice: Accu-Chek test strip recall

Posted on 09 May 2018

Roche Diabetes Care has discovered a fault causing incorrect readings in some batches of Accu-Chek Aviva and Accu-Chek Performa test strips.

Some strips may cause an error message to be displayed upon insertion into the blood glucose meter. However this is not always the case, as other strips may produce a reading that is too high or too low, and which may not easily be detected.

Steps to take if you use Accu-Chek Aviva or Accu-Chek Performa test strips:

1.       Check the ‘lot numbers’ of your test strips against the complete list provided below. You can find the lot number on the top flap of the carton packaging as well as on the label of each test strip vial as shown in the picture below.
