EpiPen Voluntary Recall Expanded to US

EpiPen Voluntary Recall Expanded to US

Meridian, which manufactures the EpiPen, had previously recalled a select amount of products across the world. Mylan is replacing any devices on the recall list for free.

If you have a recalled EpiPen, the FDA says don't toss it out until you get a replacement.

Pharmaceutical company Mylan has announced a nationwide, voluntary recall of certain lots of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. due to a possible defect.

Mylan said both reported failures included devices, manufactured between December 2015 and July 2016, that were already included in the original recall. The Mylan adult version are sold with a yellow label while the EpiPen Jr.is sold with a green label.

EpiPens deliver an emergency dose of adrenaline to people at risk of a serious allergic reaction.

Anyone who seeks more information regarding this recall can easily visit Mylan.com/EpiPenRecall for instructions and guidelines.

In a statement, the company warns that the potential defect could make it more hard to activate the device in an emergency situation-which, in general, is the most appropriate time to use the device. The company said the action is being done with the knowledge of the U.S.

EpiPens have been recalled in eight countries - and that now includes the U.S.

Mylan advised consumers to use their current EpiPens, if needed, until they receive a replacement.
