San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on safety alerts for blood glucose test strips.
As the FDA advised on April 29, healthcare professionals and people with diabetes should stop using GenStrip Blood Glucose Test Strips, by Shasta Technologies LLC, because they may report incorrect blood glucose levels.
The specific products are "third-party" blood glucose monitoring test strips advertised for use with the LifeScan OneTouch family of glucose meters (e.g. Ultra, Ultra 2 and Ultra Mini).
A recent FDA inspection of Shasta Technologies LLC revealed extensive violations of federal regulations intended to assure the quality of products in the manufacturing of this product. As there is no assurance of an adequate quality system, the strips could report incorrect blood glucose levels.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com monitor daily and update the website providing accurate information on all relevant FDA safety alerts. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds “we are determined to keep an eye on FDA announcements concerning blood glucose test strips and inform the public. "For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on investigating these safety alerts and getting the word out.”
As the FDA recommends “Discontinue use of GenStrip Blood Glucose Test Strips. FDA recommends the use of alternative glucose test strips that are designed for use with the LifeScan OneTouch family of glucose meters.”
AttorneyOne.com has further information on blood glucose test strips at the website including latest major drug and medical products law news.
