URGENT VOLUNTARY RECALL OF EPI-PEN AND EPI-PEN JR.

URGENT VOLUNTARY RECALL OF EPI-PEN AND EPI-PEN JR.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting consumers to Meridian Medical Technologies’ voluntary recalldisclaimer icon of 13 lots of Mylan’s EpiPen and EpiPen Jr (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injector products used for emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions. This recall is due to the potential that these devices may contain a defective part that may result in the devices’ failure to activate. The recalled product was manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies and distributed by Mylan Specialty.

While the number of reported failures is small, EpiPen products that potentially contain a defective part are being recalled because of the potential for life-threatening risk if a severe allergic reaction goes untreated. Consumers should keep and use their current EpiPens if needed until they get a replacement. Consumers should contact Mylan at 800-796-9526 or [email protected] with any questions.

As stated on the product label, consumers should always seek emergency medical help right away after using their EpiPens, particularly if the device did not activate.

 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.

CAUTIONS TO HELP MINIMIZE WILDFIRE SMOKE EXPOSURE

CAUTIONS TO HELP MINIMIZE WILDFIRE SMOKE EXPOSURE

Smoke from the wildfires can pose a health hazzard to anyone but it can pose more problems for those with asthma or other respiratory diseases.

  • Stay indoors with windows and doors closed if at all possible. 
  • Make sure to take your controller medications.
  • Wear protective eyewear to minimize eye irritation. 
  • Keep your rescue inhalers handy!

If you have increased or uncontrolled asthma symptoms, please call our office at 918-307-1613. 

Food Allergy

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.

  • Improved my son's life

    ACT was life saving to my son. For three years we struggled with my sons allergies before we met Dr. Love. We are so thankful to him for his care. He improved my sons life drastically with his guidance and care. I must also give praise to Todd Coleman and Karen Arnold ... they have been great docs as well along our journey.

  • So Thankful

    As any mother of a child with allergies knows, it can be life threatening and letting your child grow up and be normal is sometimes scary and hard to do. Dr. Purser has enabled Shelby to spread her wings and enabled me to let go, she has given her a great freedom and a priceless gift. I am thrilled to have her care and encouragement for Shelby.
