The EpiPen 0.3 mg has an expiry date of May 2017 and lot number 5GU763. Mylan will replace any of the affected devices free of charge.
If you have a recalled EpiPen, the FDA says don't toss it out until you get a replacement.
Mylan is recalling EpiPens in the United States. For better designation the "adult" dose has a yellow label and the "junior" dose has a green label.
The defect, if present, would make an EpiPen have trouble activating, either requiring extra force or failing altogether, causing a delay in treatment of a severe allergic reaction.
Who needs sleep? 'World's strongest' coffee has 4 times the caffeine
For perspective, a standard 12-ounce cup of coffee has around 150 milligrams of caffeine, and a Red Bull boasts around 108. Black Insomnia , a brand of coffee the company says is the strongest in the world, is now available in the United States.
Today, though, the company is in the news again with a voluntary recall over the auto-injector devices.
Mylan said both reported failures included devices, manufactured between December 2015 and July 2016, that were already included in the original recall.
Last week's recall of EpiPens in countries like Norway, Denmark, Japan, and Australia was a direct response to complaints from two consumers whose EpiPens failed to work during their allergic reactions. Some EpiPen autoinjectors have reportedly not quite been autoinjecting as they're supposed to, prompting the parent company to voluntarily initiate a far-reaching product recall.
Mylan advised consumers to use their current EpiPens, if needed, until they receive a replacement.
