Road Closed

A portion of Ashmun Street near Yale Health Center is closed until the end of August to replace a steam line in the street at the intersection of Lock and Ashmun. Only one side of Ashmun Street is currently open between Lake Place and Bristol Street. 

Drivers turning onto Ashmun Street from Webster Street are being redirected to Dixwell Avenue and detoured around the closure; the detour is clearly marked and takes drivers right onto Bristol Street, left onto Dixwell Avenue, left onto Lake Place, and left back onto Ashmun Street. Drivers are able to then turn right onto Lock Street towards Yale Health Center.

Drivers are allowed to make a right turn onto Ashmun Street when leaving Yale Health Center.

Please plan accordingly for this road closure.

Recall of Epipen and Epipen Jr. Auto-Injectors

On March 31, 2017, Mylan issued a voluntary recall of selected lots of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Auto-injector because of a potential defect could make the device difficult to activate in an anaphylactic emergency. This recall is being conducted as a result of the receipt of two previously disclosed reports outside of the U.S. of failure to activate the device due to a potential defect in a supplier component. Both reports are related to a single lot that was previously recalled outside of the U.S. The incidence of the defect is extremely rare and testing and analysis across the potentially impacted lots has not identified any units with a defect. However, the recall is being expanded to include additional lots as a precautionary measure out of an abundance of caution.

The recalled product was distributed from December 2015 through July 2016. None of the recalled lots include the authorized generic for EpiPen Auto-Injector. Mylan is committed to replacing recalled devices at no cost and reassures patients that there will be no additional replacement-related financial burden to them as a result of this recall

How do you know if your EPIPEN® or EPIPEN JR® is affected by this recall?

  1. Find your LOT # listed on the box or device
  2. Does your LOT # match any of the impacted LOT Numbers listed below:
  3. If your LOT # does NOT match, no further action is necessary
