Is it okay to continue using the inhaler?

Hi @Shellz72 , Do you have an inhaler that matches the lot numbers? If so, it is okay to continue using the inhaler, but be aware that your inhaler may have leaked and so there may not be the full number of "puffs" available. You can call the company at 1-888-825-5249 for more information. You may also want to call your doctor or insurance company about getting a new refill.

@Melanie Carver Thank you so much for your response to Shellz72. I was wondering the exact same thing. I just received a new inhaler a week ago and it happens to be in the recall batch. I will call my doctor and pharmacy Monday about getting a new inhaler.

I am very, very frustrated and distraught with GlaxoSmithKline right now. If this is a problem, no matter how remote or minute, shouldn't the customer be able to return the product for a new product immediately? If not, why even bring it to our attention? I have contacted my pharmacy, my husband's pharmacy, my doctor and my husband's doctor and they know very little if anything about this recall. This is not something to guess about. IT IS MY LIFE..AND OTHERS... GSK needs to do a better...

@Concerned , I hear your frustration about being on a fixed income. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is not associated with GlaxoSmithKline who is the manufacturer of the Ventolin inhaler. We are a non-profit organization, and we are reporting this recall to inform people with asthma who rely on this medication. Please call GlaxoSmithKline's response center at 1-888-825-5249 and speak to their representative. AAFA's blog post about What to Do If You Can't Afford Your Asthma...

@chrmiles check the canister portion. You may need to pull it out of the plastic to see.

ChrMiles, was your inhaler part of the recall?

No it wasn't. Probably too old for the recall as got it a while back. Doctor gave me new one yesterday because transferring care/other one expired. So all good to go!

Are there albuterol inhalers other than Ventolin by GlaxoSmithKline? The last 4 or 5 that I have had seemed to have been faulty. I'd like to try a different brand.

Hi Suzique, Welcome to AAFA's asthma support community. Yes, there are other brands of albuterol. If you are interested in trying one of them, I would talk to your doctor to discuss what would be appropriate for you.

Perrigo Generic Albuterol Inhaler Recalled Due to Clogging

AAFA Community Services ·
Perrigo Company plc today announced a voluntary U.S. nationwide recall of albuterol sulfate inhalation aerosol to the retail level after previously halting production and distribution. These actions are being taken out of an abundance of caution as a result of complaints that some units may not dispense due to clogging. Perrigo's generic albuterol sulfate inhalation aerosol was developed in partnership with and manufactured by Catalent Pharma Solutions.
