Tennessee Injury Attorney Represents Victims of Defective EpiPen
Malfunctioning EpiPens Have Fatal Consequences for those that depend on them.
Those with severe allergies rely on EpiPens in life or death situations. An EpiPen is an auto-injector medical device used to administer epinephrine in the event of a severe allergic reaction, or anaphylaxis. A person would only use an EpiPen in an emergency situation and, unfortunately, would only know it was defective until they needed it.
With so much at stake, it is more than upsetting to hear the FDA has sent a warning letter to the, Mylan, the makers of EpiPens citing serious violations of safe manufacturing practices. FDA investigations revealed reports of defective EpiPens resulting in serious illness or death to the consumer. In fact, Mylan recalled 13 lots, thousands of EpiPens, due to having defects which would render the instrument ineffective.
