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.

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