Warning on expiry dates

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency has issued an alert on all batches of EpiPen Auto-Injector 0.3mg (adrenaline) produced by ALK Abelló.

The outer pack and syringe carry matching expiry dates, which are correct, but the

syringe label can be peeled off to reveal a different, incorrect expiry date. The product's safety and quality are not compromised, and the agency says the product will be effective if used within the pack date.
