Thousands Of EpiPens Being Recalled Across The US

If you, or someone you know, use EpiPens to treat severe allergic reactions, you may want to check the lot number on your box.

According to WLKY, a huge recall of EpiPens has been initiated because the devices weren’t activating. Mylan, the company that produces the devices, has state the malfunctions have been caused by a potential defect in a supplier component.

A spokesperson for the company went on to state:

“The recall is being expanded to include additional lots as a precautionary measure out of an abundance of caution.”

As malfunctions with the device could cause potentially life-threatening situations, it’s highly recommended to check and see if you have a device on the recall list. Mylan is offering free replacements for all those with affected devices.
