As you all know there has been a voluntary 100% recall of the Sanofi Auvi-Q Epinephrine auto-injectors. Sanofi has been our platinum sponsor since the inception of the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference, and continues to support our community, and efforts to raise awareness and educate others about management of food allergies. Sanofi representatives plan to be on site all day Saturday in the Expo to answer questions and meet with you one on one.
However with this recent precautionary recall, there are factors at work beyond the control of myself or others whom are being impacted. It is with great regret that I have to say that we will be canceling the presentation from Dr. Eric and Evan Edwards this year. We sincerely hope to have them back at our next event; but in light of the current situation it was advised that it will be best for them not to attend.
Statement from Dr. Eric Evans:
“It is with great regret that Evan and I must cancel our attendance next week at the conference. In light of current events, Kaleo has determined that it is best that we are not present at the conference so that Sanofi may handle any inquiries relating to Auvi-Q. Given Sanofi is responsible for commercialization as well as manufacturing of Auvi-Q, we feel our presence may create a potential distraction and invite questions that we are unable to answer. We sincerely apologize and appreciate your understanding.”
I AM attempting to find a replacement speaker/presentation to fill in this time slot for you. I apologize to everyone, but these circumstances are out of my control. ~Jenny
