Bausch Health, Canada Inc. has initiated a recall of their Emerade® 0.3 mg and 0.5 mg auto-injector devices in Canada due to a potential risk that the auto-injector may fail to activate or activate prematurely if dropped.
What you should do if you have an Emerade auto-injector:
- Bring your in-date (not expired) Emerade auto-injector(s) to your pharmacist to get a replacement device as soon as possible. EpiPen® and ALLERJECT® auto-injectors remain available. To determine which device is best for you, please speak with your healthcare provider.
- You can bring a copy of Health Canada’s advisory notice to show the pharmacist.
- Health Canada has advised to keep your Emerade auto-injector until a replacement is obtained.
- Please share this information with your child’s school and let them know that any Emerade devices on school premises will need to be replaced with either EpiPen or ALLERJECT.
- As always, continue to follow and review our safety tips for managing food allergy and preventing reactions.
