So recently, my mom has started checking the codes on my EpiPens about every other day. Mylan has released a crazy amount of recalls on their life-saving product in the past week, and it’s making us panic just a little.
Reports of EpiPens failing when administered caused Mylan to look into the issue, and they found that thousands of their EpiPens had issues that might cause them not to work when we need them most.
In fact, only yesterday, Mylan increased their recall umbrella to cover more EpiPens. As of now, recalls are present internationally, in markets in the US and the rest of North America, Europe, Asia, and South America.
If you are worried about whether or not your EpiPen was recalled, I found Mylan’s press release in which they documented which specific EpiPens were recalled.
I gotta say, this is scary stuff. I can only imagine what it must be like for your EpiPen to fail on you when you need it most. Luckily, so far my EpiPens are not on the list, but if you or a loved one has allergies, make sure they know about this recall and check their numbers, as it is important that their EpiPens are immediately replaced.
Well, that’s all I have for today. Stay safe guys.
Until next time!
