FDA takes additional action to mitigate shortages of EpiPen by extending expiration date for specific lots of medication (8/22/18)
On August 21, 2018, the FDA announced to extend Epipen expiration dates for certain batches for an additional four months. Factors such as regional supply disruptions and manufacturer issues are believed to be the contributing factors for the limited supply of Epipens.
Though the FDA is not requiring or recommending that the identified batches be relabeled with their new use dates, The Office of Child Care requires that all EpiPens received in child care must come with the Health Care Provider’s Authorization and the original Pharmacy package. Epipens with the new extended expiration date must be accompanied by a written note either from the child’s prescribing health care provider or from the Pharmacy with the pharmacist’s signature.
