Safety alert for EpiPen adrenaline injector


The TGA has issued a safety alert for the EpiPen adrenaline injector because batch numbers and expiry dates on some products do not match those on the carton.

Manufacturer Alphapharm has urged pharmacists, users and their carers to check their products.

The alert follows the discovery of mismatched batches in a small part of Victoria.

TGA head Professor John Skerritt says the alert is a precautionary measure and there is no indication it is a widespread problem.
