Recall leaves Fire Department temporarily without epi kits
The Rome Fire Department is temporarily without their epinephrine allergy kits due to a company recall, according to fire officials.
Deputy Fire Chief Mark S. Kohlbrenner said this morning that he is working with medical supply company Bound Tree to get replacements. He said the recall was ordered by the kit manufacturer, Curaplex, due to improper wording in the kit instructions.
The chief said the medicine is fine.
“The manufacturer has done a recall based on the instructions in the kit,” Kohlbrenner explained this morning.
The chief said the recall went into effect on Nov. 2, and all six kits on the fire department’s trucks will need to be replaced. Kohlbrenner said the fire department has carried epinephrine for about five years. He said he does not yet have a time frame for the replacements.
