Know your options and take action if necessary
As we’ve covered here on SnackSafely.com, Mylan and Pfizer (among others) are defendants in two class-action lawsuits that allege the companies raised the price of the device 500% and sought to limit competition with other drugmakers by offering insurance companies incentives not to reimburse other brands.
One suit — predicated on the alleged violation of racketeering laws — is open to all consumers who purchased EpiPens after August 24, 2011.
The other, involving individual state anti-trust laws, is open to consumers in certain states who purchased their EpiPens after January 28, 2013. These states include Alabama, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah.
The trial is set to begin April 2021.
If you wish to participate in one or both of these lawsuits you need do nothing; you should receive notification about pending proceedings.
