  1. Yeah! When I called that number I was told I would get a call back as there was no plan in place on how to replace my 4 recalled sets of Epi-pens. No call back either.

  2. This recall is such a headache to get replacements. Why would a current valid script need to be on file as of today if the medicine was dispensed months ago? At the time it was dispensed there was a valid script on file. The should simply replace the products I PAID FOR ALREADY. So frustrating.

  3. Did you ever get the replacements and how did you find out about the recall…..we didn’t hear anything on the news about it. The only reason we found out about it is when we went to my granddaughters doctors appointment the other day. Thank you, Phyllis
