PITTSBURGH (CBS) – Certain varieties of EpiPens and EpiPen Jrs are being recalled for a potential defect.

The FDA says 13 lots of the device may fail to activate in an emergency. They have expiration dates ranging from April to October.

“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,” the FDA says.
