someone sent the link to.  The sight says the want "new" testing meters.
Are they that picky?  Wait, they can't be that picky... they also ask for
used jewelry to
buy supplies with   haha >>

I live near Bayer and know many people who work there. One person who worked
with glucometers said they were instructed to treat ALL meters that were
returned for repairs as though they were AIDS/HIV infected.  Since blood is
involved, whether the risks are there or not, that may be the reason NEW
meters are required. Usually blood isn't on jewelry (maybe green neckline
stuff - lol)
