Sanofi recalls all pen injectors used for allergic reactions

Sanofi is recalling hundreds of thousands of epinephrine injectors used to treat severe allergic reactions because they may not deliver the correct amount of the life-saving drug. 
 
The recall includes all Auvi-Q injections currently on the U.S. market, or roughly 490,000 packs of the devices, the company says. Most packs include two injectors.
 
Sanofi's product competes with Mylan's EpiPen, which is a staple of first-aid care. Both products are used to treat allergic reactions caused from insect bites, foods, medicines or other substances. 
 
About 200,000 people in the U.S. have Sanofi's injector, according to company estimates. 
 
Consumers can call 1-866-726-6340 or visit the product's website: https://www.auvi-q.com/ for information on how to return the injector. They should also contact their health provider to get a prescription for an alternate device.

It wouldn't be Halloween without candy, so safe trick or treating is held throughout the complex.  Additional fun includes a haunted house, inflatables, a rock wall, arts and crafts, carnival-style games and more.
 
Children up to 12 years old can show off their costumes during the parade of costumes and enter costume contest in age group categories for the scariest and most creative.  New this year is a teen dance for 6th to 8th graders.
 
Along with all the activities, live entertainment and food completes this event.
 
Entrance is free, but families are encouraged to bring canned food items to benefit the St. Mary's/Westside Food Bank Alliance.  Some activities require an additional fee, while others are free.  Activity/ride wristbands are available for purchase of $5 for 3, $10 for 8 or $12 for unlimited.

Cold or Flu? Fact or Fiction

There are numerous old wives tales and secret family recipes for beating the cold and flu. But is there any truth behind them? Let's figure it out now, before you really get hit hard by runny noses and high fevers that leave you stuck in bed for days. 

Holistic pharmacist and health author Sherry Torkos answers these types of questions all the time. She give us what the fact and fiction of treating a cold or the flu. True or False?

-  Does chicken soup really help?
True. There is actually some truth to this one. Researchers found that chicken soup has an anti-inflammatory effect, mobilizing the neutrophils and making them work a little bit better. It also keeps the mucus in the nose moving so that the virus, which sits in the nose, would mobilize faster and help speed recovery

-  Will leaving the house into the cold with wet hair really cause you to get sick?
False: Most colds occur during the fall and winter because people tend to spend more time indoors and that increases the chances that viruses will spread to you from someone else. Seasonal changes in relative humidity also may affect the prevalence of colds.

- Can natural remedies really speed healing?
True: While OTC drugs only provide symptom relief, a few vitamin and herb natural products have been clinically researched and shown to reduce symptoms and shorten duration. Zinc and black elderberry extract are two good examples.

- Does honey really sooth a sore throat?
True: Honey contains various nutrients that are soothing to your mucus membrane, it reduces inflammation, and provides relief for sore throat and cough.

- Antibiotics the only medication that works for cold and flu?
False: Antibiotics are of no value in treating a cold. The common cold is caused by a group of viruses called the Rhinoviruses. Antibiotics are helpful in treating bacterial infections.

- Starve a fever, feed a cold?
False: This is an old wives tale and there is not a shred of evidence to support this saying when facing a cold or flu. Many people lose their appetite with the flu, and you don't have to force yourself to eat, especially if your stomach is queasy, but it's very important to drink lots of fluids and stay hydrated when you have a cold and the flu.
