Pfizer Canada has released a recall for two types of their emergency anti-allergy medication.
The drugmaker, Mylan, announced it is recalling more than 81,000 epipen devices in the United States and other continents.
This recall is being conducted following two confirmed worldwide reports of the device failing to activate. For example, using the product is not dangerous-the recall only suggests that the delivery system may not be as effective-so a potentially faulty device remains better than no device at all.
The EpiPen is used to treat allergic reactions to certain food and bug bites.

Mylan issued the notice on Friday, expanding upon warnings made earlier in March after two reports of the device failing. We are asking patients to keep their existing product until their replacement product can be secured.
