Bayer Ascensia Contour Blood Glucose Monitor Recall

Updated July 13- Bayer Healthcare and the FDA have announced a Class 1 recall for Bayer’s Ascensia Contour Blood Glucose monitoring system, product number 7125A. The system is used by diabetics to monitor their amount of blood glucose.

The product was recalled because the meters reported the wrong units of measure for Canadian users. Instead of reporting the values in mmol/L, which is the unit of measure used for diabetics in Canada., the system was reporting in mg/dL. By reading the blood glucose level displayed, consumers may misinterpret their results and have a reaction of hypoglycemia.

If you are using a Bayer Ascensia Contour Blood Glucose Monitor then you should contact your physician immediatedly. Alternatively, if you have been injured as a result of this meter, then you should contact an attorney. InjuryBoard attorneys are handling Bayer Ascensia Contour blood glucose meter lawsuits now, and will review your case today. Please be advised that there are time limitations within which you must commence suit.
