EpiPen distributor Mylan N.V. has expanded a voluntary recall on the life-saving injectors over fears that some may not work. The company saying the instances are “extremely rare,” but are urging those who bought specific lots of EpiPen to apply for a replacement, free of charge.
From the FDA:
“Mylan is committed to replacing recalled devices at no cost and Mylan would like to reassure patients that there will be no additional replacement-related financial burden to them as a result of this recall. Patients, customers and distributors are being notified and should refer to Mylan.com/EpiPenRecall for updates on product return and replacement instructions. We are asking patients to keep their existing product until their replacement product can be secured.”
Mylan N.V. was recently hit with a class-action racketeering lawsuit over alleged price gouging of the life-saving medicine.
