On Oct. 28, 2015, Sanofi recalled all distributed lots of both strengths for Auvi-Q® (epinephrine injection). After multiple reports that Auvi-Q auto-injectors that did not work properly, Sanofi found that doses of epinephrine from the devices may not be accurate. Because Auvi-Q is used to quickly reverse severe allergic reactions, inadequate doses may not control emergencies. Patients who have Auvi-Q injectors are advised to ask their doctors right away for a different epinephrine delivery device, either EpiPen® (epinephrine) or Adrenaclick®(epinephrine). Sanofi will refund patient cost for replacement injectors if patients provide a receipt. For details on how to return Auvi-Q devices and how to claim a refund patients can contact Sanofi at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-726-6340 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET.
