Emerade 500mcg Auto-injectors Recall
Emerade 500mcg auto-injectors are been recalled by the manufacturer due to an error in one component of the auto-injector believed to cause some pens to fail to activate and deliver adrenaline.
If you have an in-date Emerade 500mcg auto-injector please return this to your local pharmacy once you have obtained a prescription, and been supplied with, an alternative brand.
Alternative brands will have different instructions for how to use them, the attached information provides training videos to ensure you are confident in using new devices.
Remember that you should always carry two in-date auto-injectors with you at all times in case you need to administer a second dose of adrenaline before the arrival of the emergency services.
