Novamax recall

I just got a registered letter about this letting me know certain of the meter kits had faulty test strips (glucose).
They're replacing the strips if you have the lots that were bad.
Mine wasn't on the list, but I did report way back when I got it that it was really off from the other 2 meters, so I personally wouldn't trust any of their glucose test strips.
I can't believe mine wasn't on there when it consistently registered 40pts off

My strips are on the list. I'll contact them to check about my meter, as some of the meter kits from online are included.

This might be a reason why my fasting glucose readings were over 100 lol.

Thanks for posting this--- I hadn't heard.

I pulled the novamax out after the recall letter and it's still testing 36pts higher than the other 2.
The batch of strips isn't on the list, so either they're all faulty or the meter is.
