13 Lots of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Recalled
By Amy Orciari Herman
Thirteen lots of Mylan's EpiPen and EpiPen Jr auto-injectors are being recalled because the devices may have a defect that could interfere with their activation in emergency situations.
The recall follows reports of two devices that failed to activate "due to a potential defect in a supplier component," according to Mylan's press release.
The recalled lots were distributed between December 2015 and July 2016. A list of the lot numbers is available at the link below. Mylan is asking that patients with recalled EpiPens keep their current devices until they receive a replacement; guidance for affected patients is also linked below.
