RECALL ALERT: Auvi-Q Recalls Epinephrine Auto-Injectors

The following recall of Auvi-Qs, (epinephrine auto-injectors) was released this evening.

“The company says it is arranging for return and reimbursement of all recalled products, which include lot number 2299596 through 3037230, which expire March 2016 through December 2016.”

AUVI-Q

Like many, many people, this affects us since both sets of my son’s Auvi-Qs were part of this recall. From our understanding as of right now, we are asked to get alternate epinephrine devices (other than Auvi-Q) then follow the information on how to get reimbursed.

“Auvi‑Q is one of three epinephrine auto‑injectors available in the U.S. The other two are EpiPen® and Adrenaclick®.  “

        I know… Thankfully our old EpiPens do not expire until February. However, we reached out to our doctors for refills of EpiPens. And plan to inform day care of this tomorrow.

        Even today going to get an Epipen with a coupon was over $300. Every single time I go and get it, the workers at the pharmacy looked mortified about the pricing. I pray that one day this changes for the better. =)

      *The price of these devices especially the Auvi-Q even with a coupon is insane ( at least in our experience with our insurance.)
