Wegmans stores are out of EpiPens, and Tops stores are running low on supply.

Wegmans stores are out of EpiPens, and Tops stores are running low on supply.

The device is used to treat people with life-threatening allergic reactions.

Food and Drug Administration said there is not a widespread shortage, and the manufacturer is reporting adequate supplies of EpiPens in the U.S. So the reason for the local shortage is unclear.

The FDA-staff said that occasionally pharmacies report spot shortages, which are usually temporary and involve distribution issues.

A Wegmans spokesperson said that the chain still has EpiPen Junior in stock. The spokesperson expects a shipment of regular EpiPens in the next week to 10 days.
