ASCIA has been alerted to a letter released by the FDA in the USA, regarding an investigation into the Mylan recall of EpiPen® devices earlier this year. To date, ASCIA has not received any correspondence regarding EpiPen®s failing to be discharged in an emergency situation in Australia or New Zealand. We are also not aware of any problem batches of EpiPen®s at present. We are awaiting further information from Mylan to guide further action.  In the meantime, if you have any questions you should contact Mylan Customer Service by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
