There is a major problem with some EpiPens that could end up delaying emergency treatment.
Health Canada is warning that some EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. auto-injector devices may not slide out of their tubes easily.
Pfizer Canada says the issue is with the device label, and not with the device itself or the drug it delivers.
Health Canada says the products are not being recalled by Pfizer, as the risk can be easily mitigated by simply checking the devices to make sure they slide easily out of their carrier tube.
