Parents who do not wish to vaccinate their children on conscientious grounds are banned from having their children enrolled in child care centres in NSW. 

There is an urgent recall regarding EpiPen 300 Batches, following consultation with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). 

The urgent recall is for 4 batches of EpiPen 300 with the following batch numbers and an expiry of Apr 17:

  • 5FA665
  • 5FA6651 
  • 5FA6652 
  • 5FA6653 

No other batches of EpiPen, including the EpiPen Jr 150 microgram version, are thought to be affected, the TGA said.

This recall is due to the potential that these devices may contain a defective part that may result in the device failing to activate or requiring increased force to activate.

If the EpiPen fails to activate it may result in life threatening adverse events as the underlying anaphylaxis will not be treated.

If you have an Epipen with one of the above batch numbers you will need to replace it with a new one as soon as possible by returning it to your pharmacist, who will replace it with an EpiPen 300 from a different batch FREE OF CHARGE.
