Anyone with an Auvi-Q device for allergy needs to replace that prescription as all Auvi-Q have been recalled. Please contact our office.

Recall of all Auvi-Q products

Sanofi is voluntarily recalling all Auvi-Q products in United States. The recall includes both the 0.15 mg & 0.3 mg strengths for hospitals, retailers and consumers. The products have been found to potentially have inaccurate dosage delivery which could affect the life-saving characteristics of the drug in an emergency situation.

All patients who carry Auvi-Q should contact their doctor’s office to receive a prescription for an alternative epinephrine product, such as Epi-Pen or Epi-pen Jr.

If you or your child experiences an allergic reaction requiring injectable epinephrine and you only have Auvi-Q available, use one or both of the Auvi-Q and call 911.

Customers with questions regarding this recall can go to www.Auvi-Q.com or call 1-866-726-6340 Mon – Fri 8 AM – 8 PM for information about how to return their Auvi-Q devices.

Sanofi will provide reimbursement for out of pocket costs incurred for the purchase of new epinephrine auto-injectors with proof of purchase.
