If you have refilled a Perrigo albuterol inhaler in the last 3 months, the medication has been voluntarily recalled by Perrigo.
The reason for the recall is due to possible clogging of the inhaler resulting in patients not receiving enough or any medicine.
Patients should also receive a letter from Perrigo with written notice of the recall. Patients could experience health risks if their rescue inhaler malfunctions and does not relieve symptoms in an emergency situation. Please contact your provider with any questions or concerns.
