EpiPens Recalled for Possible Failure to Activate


Mylan, a Pfizer Company, is expanding a worldwide recall of certain varieties of EpiPen auto-injectors to include devices sold in the U.S.

Details of the EpiPen Recall

According to CBS Local, the recall affects 13 lots of devices. All have expiration dates ranging from April 2017 to October 2017.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received reports of device failures but claims the number of reports is small. However, because of the potential for death in the event of a device failure, the FDA feels the recall is warranted.

Anyone with questions should contact Mylan at 1-800-796-9526.
