Verio Recall

LifeScan has announced a voluntary removal and replacement of the OneTouch® Verio®IQ blood glucose meter, effective immediately.

The reason:

We have recently determined that at extremely high blood glucose levels of 1024 mg/dL and above, the OneTouch® Verio®IQ Meter will turn off instead of displaying the message “EXTREME HIGH GLUCOSE above 600 mg/dL” as intended. 
I think that there might be other issues at 1,024 but YDMV. At any rate see the details and act accordingly. Maybe most important of acting accordingly,  is to stay out of the extremely high range.
