Meridian Medical Technologies has voluntarily recalled 13 lots of Mylan’s EpiPen and EpiPen Jr auto injectors. This is due to the finding that the autoinjector does not consistently deliver the proper amount of epinepherine. This can lead to a life threatening situation if anaphylaxis remains insufficiently treated. It is recommended that people continue to use their EpiPen products until they can receive a replacement.
Mylan is replacing the autoinjectors at no cost to consumers. You can return your recalled device to Stericycle (877-650-3494). Contact Mylan at 800-796-9526 or email@example.com with any questions.
The 13 lots identified are the only EpiPen lots impacted by the recall. Other lots of autoinjectors are not needing to be replaced at this time.
