FDA Says They Are Expecting an Epipen Shortage

FDA reports shortage of EpiPens, citing 'manufacturing delays'

EpiPens and other competing devices deliver doses of adrenaline via an automatic injector that a patient or caregiver can administer in the event of severe allergic reaction, such as to bee stings or exposure to peanuts.

The agency says the products are now available but manufacturing delays are causing a short-term shortage across the country. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news. Mylan is the company that partners with Pfizer to make EpiPens. In some instances, patients were hurt or died as a result of faulty injectors.

In a statement released Wednesday, Mylan said it is now receiving continual supply from its manufacturing partner and is expediting shipments to wholesales upon receipt. Pfizer said it was overcoming the manufacturing problems, saying it was increasing production.
