What to Do If Your Albuterol Inhaler Is Backordered

The GoodRx Pharmacist - February 26, 2016

In December 2015, Ventolin HFA (albuterol) inhalers were recalled. The reason for the recall: there were a small number of canisters that did not have enough propellant—meaning the inhalers wouldn’t deliver the full 200 puffs the labeling promises.
