EpiPen Voluntary Recall Expanded to US

EpiPen Voluntary Recall Expanded to US

Mylan NV said it was expanding a recall of its EpiPen allergy injection to the U.S., 10 days after it issued a recall of more than 80,000 devices around the world. Thankfully, the two people trying to use their EpiPens were able to seek medical attention promptly after their devices failed to work and survived.

Mylan called the defect "extremely rare", and is recalling 13 lots of the pens.

Mylan said both reported failures included devices, manufactured between December 2015 and July 2016, that were already included in the original recall.

The products involved in the recall are EpiPen auto-injectors with an expiry date of May 2017, and EpiPen Jr. auto-injectors with an expiry date of March 2017. (0.15 mg) are sold as 2 Pak Auto-Injectors.

"The expanded voluntary recall is being initiated in the USA and also will extend to additional markets in Europe, Asia, North and South America", Mylan said.

Rather than discard the recalled EpiPens, Mylan is suggesting that patients who have one of the devices on the above list to hold onto their injector until they have secured a replacement. Mylan also sells a generic version of EpiPen for $300. If you have any additional questions regarding this recall, please contact Mylan Customer Relations at 800-796-9526 or customer.service@mylan.com. Delays in epinephrine administration have been associated with negative health consequences.
