The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting consumers to Meridian Medical Technologies’ voluntary recall of 13 lots of Mylan’s EpiPen and EpiPen Jr (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injector products used for emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions. This recall is due to the potential that these devices may contain a defective part that may result in the devices’ failure to activate. The recalled product was manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies and distributed by Mylan Specialty.

Creating Generous Citizens
Religiously based U.S. high schools are proving to be especially good at turning out graduates who become civic-minded adults, finds a new study funded by Cardus. In fact, Catholic school graduates are over 50 percent more likely than public school graduates to volunteer for organizations that fight poverty. The same data show graduates of Evangelical Protestant and other non-Catholic religious schools are about 40 percent more likely to volunteer in general as adults than their public school counterparts are. Sociologists Dr. David Sikkink and Dr. Jonathan Schwarz authored the study, “The Lasting Impact of High School on Giving and Volunteering in the U.S.”, as part of their work at the Cardus Religious Schools Initiative at the University of Notre Dame.
