Voluntary Worldwide Recall of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Auto-Injector

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting consumers to Meridian Medical Technologies' voluntary recall of 13 lots of Mylan's EpiPen and EpiPen Jr (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injector products used for emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions. This recall is due to the potential that these devices may contain a defective part that may result in the devices' failure to activate. The recalled product was manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies, a Pfizer company, and distributed by Mylan Specialty between December 2015 and July 2016. Please visit the website (/Safety/Recalls/ucm550173.htm) to see if your pen is included in the impacted lots. You can then contact your pharmacy where you may receive either EpiPen Auto Injector or the authorized generic for the EpiPen Auto-Injector as a replacement based on availability. To return your product, please contact Stericycle at 877-650-3494. If you have any additional questions regarding this recall, please contact Mylan Customer Relations at 800-796-9526 or customer.service@mylan.com.
