Expiration Date for EpiPen
To address continued shortages of EpiPen®, Pfizer and Mylan are coordinating with FDA to extend the expiration dates by four months of all lots of EpiPen®(epinephrine injection, USP) 0.3 mg Auto- Injectors and its authorized generic version currently on the market in the U.S. after a review of stability data. Patients should have confidence in using the products as Pfizer works to stabilize supply.
The affected lots, which have current expiration dates between February 2019 and October 2020, are listed in a table with their new expiration dates on FDA's website andEpiPen.com/EpiPenSupply. The extension of the expiration dates does not apply to EpiPen Jr® (epinephrine injection, USP) 0.15 mg Auto-Injectors and its authorized generic version. Patients must continue to adhere to the manufacturer's expiry date labeled on EpiPen Jr® 0.15 mg and Epinephrine Injection, USP Auto- Injectors 0.15 products.

Sometimes children labeled with food allergy due to past positive tests aren't really allergic at all and can eat all and can eat these foods without symptoms. Your allergist may want to introduce your child to these foods, using a safer manner than just trying it at home. This is called a food challenge. Ask your allergist if this would be an option for your child.
