Pfizer Canada has released a recall for two types of their emergency anti-allergy medication.
EpiPen and EpiPen Jr lots recalled in U.S.by Mylan.
It says the defect is very rare and so far tests have not been able to replicate the failures, and the recalls are entirely cautionary. None of therecalled lots include the authorized generic for EpiPen Auto-Injector, which is also manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies.
According to the company, some of the devices may have a defective part that does not allow for the activation of the injector in case of allergic reaction.
Both reports of pens that failed to activate were from a single lot that had already been recalled.
EpiPen Jr (0.15 mg epinephrine) auto-injector lot 5GR765, expiry date March 2017.
The company said the recalls are the result of two reported EpiPen failures that occurred outside the United States - due to a "potential defect in a supplier component" - and that more than 80,000 auto-injectors could contain the fault.
Mylan is already suffering from bad PR after the company introduced a 600 percent price hike for the life saving device previous year, an increase the CEO argued was "fair".
The injection is used to counteract unsafe allergic reactions, such as those from bee stings or food allergies.
"What they're asking consumers to do is to check to see if their EpiPens are in these lots, and if so, to send them back so they can send replacements", Childs said.
The company said more than 100,000 products that could be affected were distributed in Canada.
