HIV risk? Blood glucose meter supplies

Did some looking around on the Internet and could not find an answer so my question is are there any risks getting HIV from using blood glucose supplies considering there is blood involved. If a person with HIV accidentally gets his/her blood on the meter or the test strips (supplies) is it possible to catch HIV this way when putting your blood in contact with the test strips (supplies)? Hope this makes sense but I just would like assurance. Thank you!
