Recall of Glucagon Emergency Kit for Low Blood Sugar
On October 20, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Eli Lilly and Company is voluntarily recalling one lot of Glucagon Emergency Kit for Low Blood Sugar (Glucagon for Injection, 1 mg per vial; Diluent for Glucagon, 1 mL syringe) as a Class I Recall.
The vial of Glucagon in one lot was in liquid form instead of powder form. The liquid form of this product may fail to treat severe low blood sugar due to loss of potency.
Please note that not all lots are affected, so you may not be affected by this recall. Only one lot is being recalled. If you have a Glucagon Emergency Kit for Low Blood Sugar, please contact your health care provider to talk about other treatments or medicines that may be appropriate.
