Epipen and Epipen Jr voluntary recall by Pfizer

Pfizer Canada, in consultation with Health Canada, is voluntarily recalling one lot of EpiPen auto-injector and one lot of EpiPen Jr. auto-injector following two international reports of the device failing to activate. At the present time, there have been no confirmed reports of device failures in Canada but a voluntary recall has been placed for safety reasons.

The affected lots are as follows:

  • EpiPen (0.3 mg epinephrine) auto-injector lot 5GU763, expiry date May 2017
  • EpiPen Jr (0.15 mg epinephrine) auto-injector lot 5GR765, expiry date March 2017

Patients should be advised to contact their pharmacy to arrange return and replacement of their device as soon as possible. In the event of a life-threatening allergic reaction before a replacement device is obtained, patients should use their Epipen/Epipen Jr as directed and seek emergency medical attention immediately.

Full details of the recall can be found here.

If you would like to speak to a Family Health Team pharmacist regarding the voluntary recall please contact your regular clinic for assistance.
