If you or your patients have any of the recalled auto-injectors, you should refer to Mylan.com/EpiPenRecall for updates on product return and replacement instructions. Mylan will replace the recalled devices for free and is asking patients to keep their existing product until their replacement product can be secure. Patients may receive either EpiPen Auto-Injector or the authorized generic for EpiPen Auto-Injector at the pharmacy as a replacement based on availability. It is important that patients continue to carry their current EpiPen Auto-Injector until they receive a replacement device.
If you need more information, please contact Mylan Customer Relations at 800-796-9526 or customer.service@mylan.com.
