Up to 80,000 EpiPens have been recalled in Australia due to a fault which may cause them to activate incorrectly.

The recall affects EpiPen 300 microgram adrenaline injection syringe auto-injectors with the batch numbers 5FA665, 5FA6651, 5FA6652 and 5FA6653. All have an expiry date of April 2017.

Other batches of Australian EpiPens are not affected by the recall. However, EpiPens distributed overseas may also be affected with the Danish authorities also recalling 499 EpiPens within the last 24 hours.
