PLEASE NOTE:

This morning Sanofi US has announced a nationwide recall of their Auvi-Q (epinephrine injector).

According to the company the products have been found to potentially have inaccurate dosage deliver.
What this could mean is that if a person experiencing a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) did not receive the intended dose, there could be significant health consequences, including death because anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening condition.

The Auvi-Q’s being recalled are those with:

Lot # 2299596 through 3037230

Expiration dates: March 2016 through December 2016.

The company recommends that you contact your health care provider immediately for a prescription for an alternate epi pen auto injector.

If you have any questions please contact your child’s school nurse.

Karen Turmel, Nursing Supervisor
