Re: Important Recall Notice: All Auvi-Q Epinephrine Auto-Injectors

Amber B. ·
Lynda, It says all Auvi-Q's currently on the market and gives the numbers and dates, ones issued with March 2016+ expiration dates . Some of our Auvi-Q's, which are NOT currently on the market, expire in October 2015 and February 2016. These auvi-Q's are not referred to by Sanofi, the FDA, etc, thus the ambiguity. I will am in process of getting some EpiPens to replace all of our Auvi-Q's, but I cannot imagine being eligible to replace them all immediately, and certainly do not expect...

Amber, we will contact Sanofi to clarify. I can see why there's confusion. We were told all Auvi-Qs and the FDA recall says all Auvi-Qs. But the lot numbers in the recall don't include all Auvi-Qs that people have. Thanks! Lynda

Hello, fellow parents! I just hung up with the service agent I reached via the 800 # listed on the press release. I waited 40 minutes in queue first. They are sending a recall packet, which arrives in 5-10 biz days. Meanwhile, I can go to pharmacy and buy (out-of-pocket) a new epi (not Auvi-Q, as they are all being taken off shelves), and I'll be reimbursed the cost after I send in proof-of-purchase along with my recalled Auvi-Qs.

Update: We have confirmed this recall affects ALL Auvi-Q devices. It doesn't matter what lot number. Update: Sanofi confirms the phone number in the press release is correct. The lines have been overwhelmed by calls. They are adding more staff and opening more lines. The number will remain the same: 1-866-726-6340 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET

I heard from Sanofi. It is a recall of ALL autoinjectors regardless of lot numbers.

Thanks for the update... I spoke with someone from Sanofi last evening and she told me my previous pens (not included in the recalled lot numbers) would be safe. However, she also indicated that they were only then getting detailed information and couldn't tell me more than the press release had stated. It made me nervous using an earlier device considering Sanofi has inferred that they are not exactly sure what is occurring with the dosing, thus making me concerned that ALL devices are...

I called waited 45 mins. Gave my name for the Return/ Reimbursement packet and asked about Oct 15 to Feb 16 Expiration dates and was told they were fine. So not sure if I trust it after y'all were told it is ALL DEVICES. I got one set of replacements. Called my insurance company and they over ruled to allow me to get another set tomorrow (pharmacy only had one set on the shelf). They allowed because need at least two sets at school since one set is locked in office and one set is in my child...

My Target pharmacy called me yesterday to make sure that I knew about the recall and she told me that they were asking their patients to bring their recalled Auvi-Qs to the pharmacy when they pick up their new prescription. I was able to fill one Epipen, Jr. prescription and my second will be filled when their truck arrives (they were completely out of Epipen, Jrs. and only had one Epipen on the shelf). I don't know if all pharmacies are calling their patients and handling the recall for...

This has been vey confusing, as to whether ALL Auvi-Q's are under the recall up to this point. Many on the Sanofi Lines were told it was only limited to Auvi-Q's with Expiration dates of March 2016 and later, with the lot numbers described for those Auvi-Q's. I myself received a return phone call from the FDA confirming exactly the same information, and that those Auvi-Q's with exp. dates of February 2016 and before should be fine. NOW SANOFI HAS REMOVED ALL DOUBT: ALL AUVI-Q AUTO-INJECTORS...

My son’s schools have amazing nurses. However, when I brought them a non-Mylan epinephrine auto-injector, they did not know how to use it. I forwarded the video from the manufacturer on how to use it! This is huge issue in all schools. School Nurses are the first line of defense, they should be re-trained annually!

Wow, Vantastic4! I am so sorry! Did you get the Auvi-Q because you were unable to get the epi-pens?

Yes....Walgreens said they are sold out everywhere. They said they would call me ASAP when they are available again because I didn’t get the auvi-q!

What Are Your Options for Injectable Epinephrine Devices?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Epinephrine is a lifesaving medicine for people with severe allergies. It is important to discuss with your doctor about what is the most appropriate prescription for your family. You may also need to find out which options your insurance provider prefers. This will affect your out-of-pocket costs.
