To all patients who have epinephrine auto-injectors or EpiPens at home:
Please see the following alert from the FDA.
This is not a recall of the epinephrine injectors, just a caution to use them properly, and ensure you can remove the injectors from their sleeves.
There are a few units whose blue safety releases are slightly raised. These may activate prematurely.
If the safety release is removed with sideways force, the unit may activate prematurely. Remove the safety with vertical force.
Some units are difficult to remove from their sleeves.
