Potential Cracks in Accu-Chek Strip Vials

Users of Accu-Chek Comfort Curve and Accu-Chek Advantage test strips are being asked by Roche Diagnostics to check the bottom of the test strip vials for cracks. The cracks could moisture to enter the vial, which can cause inaccurate test results on the strips in the vial. The number of vials with cracks being reported is very small, but all Accu-Chek users should check their vials.

If you find a crack in a vial of Accu-Chek test strips, you should call Accu-Chek customer support at 1-800-858-8072 to arrange for a replacement.
