There’s a Nationwide Recall of Mylan Epipens: Check This List

There’s a Nationwide Recall of Mylan Epipens: Check This List

If you need an EpiPen on you, make sure it works. Some of Mylan’s hundred-dollar devices don’t.

Last Friday, a nationwide recall of Mylan Epipens was announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The recall is a voluntary one issued by Meridian Medical Technologies- (Meridianis the maker of the EpiPens, and Mylan is the distributor).

It’s being done due to the fact that the some of Mylans’ EpiPens could contain “a defective part that may result in the devices’ failure to activate.”

Scary. What should you do if you have some of these products? The FDA is recommending that consumers keep their current EpiPens- as they may still work- but that you get some new ones as soon as possible, as replacements.

The FDA states on its website, “At this time, the 13 lots identified – distributed between Dec. 17, 2015, and July 1, 2016 – are the only EpiPen lots impacted by the U.S. recall. Consumers who have EpiPens from lots that are not included in this recall, do not need to replace their EpiPen prior to its expiration date.”

Mylan is the same company that has evil in its heart and jacked the price of its lifesaving EpiPens up overnight, giving the product a 500 percent price increase.

It now costs hundreds of dollars for a two pack on Mylan EpiPens, obviously something absolutely everyone can afford.

Not to be bitter, but hopefully the owner is actually allergic to bees and doesn’t know it. We’ll send them in.

What, your multi-hundred-dollar-EpiPen didn’t work? Oh, dang.
