Recall EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. by Mylan
We recently received notification that Mylan announced a recall of several lots of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr because of two reports outside of the U.S of failure to activate the device due to a potential defect in a supplier component.
Per Mylan, the potential defect could make the device difficult to activate in an emergency (failure to activate or increased force needed to activate) and have significant health consequences for a patient experiencing anaphylaxis.
Below are the lot numbers affected by the recall. If you have questions or need more information about this recall, please call Mylan at 800-796-9526 (8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday). If you are in need of a prescription refill because you have an affected lot number, please contact our office.
