Add to the poison pet food, toothpaste, and ten million lead-laden toys a new and dangerous product out of China. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) has found counterfeit versions of its OneTouch Test Strip according to Bloomberg. The test strips measure blood glucose so that diabetics know what dose of insulin to give themselves.
Of course, if diabetics get bad measurements they can give themselves the wrong dose. Fake medicines are a $32 billion global business, says the World Health Organization.
The FDA reports that one million of these fake tests made it to the US through Canada. JNJ say that “The counterfeiters counterfeited every element from the original box except they put a fake lot number."
Save yourself. Buy American.
