There's another serious medical device recall to report about.

The FDA has recalled many Mylan Pharmaceuticals EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. due to a defective part that might keep it from working.

According to the FDA:

While the number of reported failures is small, EpiPen products that potentially contain a defective part are being recalled because of the potential for life-threatening risk if a severe allergic reaction goes untreated. Consumers should keep and use their current EpiPens if needed until they get a replacement. Consumers should contact Stericycle at 877-650-3494.
