Allerject recall in Canada

Sanofi Canada has issued a voluntary recall of all Allerject units currently on the market. The recall includes both strengths for all customers. Apparently they may have inaccurate dosages, which can be extremely problematic if needed for an anaphylactic reaction. 

There have been more than 20 reports of device malfunctions, which sounds troublesome, but considering there are more than 2.7 million units out there in the market, that's not a huge number. But as we know, there's no room for error when dealing with anaphylaxis.
