EpiPen recall
Posted 04/11/2017 02:12PM

It has come to our attention that Meridian Medical Technologies, a Pfizer company and Mylan's manufacturing partner for EpiPen® (epinephrine injection, USP) Auto-Injector, has expanded a voluntary recall of select lots of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr®(epinephrine injection, USP) Auto-Injectors to now include additional lots distributed in the U.S. and other markets in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you check the lot numbers of the EpiPen Auto-Injectors you may have at home.If your child has one of the recalled Epi-Pens at school you will be notified.

If you think you may be impacted by this recall, please follow these steps:

STEP 1: Check the lot number on your carton or device to see if your EpiPen® Auto-Injector is affected by the recall.

STEP 2: If your EpiPen® Auto-Injector has been recalled, contact Stericycle at 877-650-3494 to obtain a voucher code for your free replacement product. Stericycle also will provide you with a pre-paid return package to ship the product back to Stericycle.

STEP 3: Visit your pharmacy with your voucher information to redeem your free replacement.

STEP 4: Send your recalled product to Stericycle. Do not return any devices affected by the recall until you have your replacement in hand.

Stericycle's hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-10 p.m. ET, and extended hours on Saturday, April 8, and Sunday, April 9, from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. ET.
