Then in March 2017, Mylan recalled thousands of devices after complaints that some had failed to activate.
While once the crown jewel of Mylan's product portfolio, the trouble over manufacturing, increased competition and a pricing scandal have tarnished the EpiPen brand. "Since this time, Mylan and Pfizer have remained in close contact with FDA to provide regular updates on the inventory status", the company added.

The devices are made to deliver epinephrine during emergency treatment of serious allergic reactions. Six pharmacies did not respond. The FDA said while the pens are available "supply levels may vary across wholesales and pharmacies".

Pfizer and the FDA maintained there was no national shortage of the lifesaving medication. The shortage includes EpiPens, which are pre-filled devices used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis. The Company states that they are expediting shipment to wholesalers as soon as they receive supply from MMT.

"If you have a severe allergy and carry epinephrine, it is important to know that each brand functions a little differently". Check the expiration date on the ones you have, and if any have expired, call your doctor or pharmacy for a refill.
