 Epi Pen Recall
 April 1, 2017 -- The U.S. has joined the list of countries covered by a voluntary recall of EpiPen auto-injectors for severe allergic reactions.

The recall was triggered by a defective part that may result in the device failing to inject a potentially life-saving dose of epinephrine, the FDA said Friday.

 In the United States, the recall applies to 13 lots of both EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. auto-injectors distributed between December 17, 2015, and July 1, 2016   (This product was distributed by Mylan).

 See links below for the lot numbers and replacement information.
