Certain batches of Jext auto-injectors have been recalled due to a manufacturing fault: www.allergyuk.org/blog/blog/post/114-important-information-recall-of-jext-auto-injectors

Thanks - don't have one but this is the place to put the info!

Thanks for posting this, OP, will check DS's JEXT pens now.

MissMilliment Mon 09-Dec-13 18:22:23

DS's are some of the dodgy ones - probably wouldn't have known about it nearly so quickly if not for you OP, thankyou smile thanks

So glad the information was useful MissMilliment. We have Epi-pens rather than Jext but I know lots on here use Jext so wanted to make sure that as many as possible knew about the recall. Hope you manage to sort out replacements quickly.

Received a letter about this today from the chemist who dispensed our jext. They turned out to come from the did batch.
