Mylan Says EpiPen Manufacturing Partner to Expand Device Recall

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday emphatically denied allegations of Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election

Mylan, the makers of the EpiPen emergency allergy treatment are expanding a previously announced overseas recall to now include EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. devices distributed in the US over concerns they may not function properly when needed.

EpiPen and EpiPen Jr lots recalled in U.S.by Mylan. EpiPens are used to counteract severe allergic reactions.

The widening recall is yet another setback for Mylan in its quest to maintain EpiPen as a big-selling product.

The expected fall-off follows the controversy that erupted last summer over steady and steep price increases for the device, which costs about $600 for a two-pack.

The 13 lots of recalled EpiPens were distributed between December 17, 2015, and July 1, 2016, the FDA said.

The Mylan company has just issued another recall. This company also makes a Generic EpiPen that is not included in the recall, according to ABC 15.

The products involved in the recall are EpiPen auto-injectors with an expiry date of May 2017, and EpiPen Jr. auto-injectors with an expiry date of March 2017.

Mylan advised consumers to use their current EpiPens, if needed, until they receive a replacement.

Mylan didn't immediately respond to a question about how many devices are affected by the recall.

If you have one of the recalled EpiPens, you are urged to contact your pharmacy for a replacement.
