DSHS Issues Advisory to Schools After Food and Drug Administration’s Action on EpiPens 

The Texas Department of State Health Services is advising school personnel to review the lot numbers of EpiPen 0.3 auto-injectors in their schools before disposing of expired products after federal authorities extended the expiration dates of some products by four months.

More information is available on FDA’s drug shortage web page and FDA in Brief
