Based on this study, there are a significant number of children under 15kg at risk of receiving an epinephrine auto-injector into the bone. Because of this risk, epinephrine auto-injectors should be prescribed with caution in this population.

The European Medicines Agency will now review the available data on the delivery of adrenaline from auto-injectors and on whether the product information contains clear and detailed instructions for appropriate use, and issue an opinion on the marketing authorisations of these medicines across the European Union (EU).

I didn't read through all of this.
I did, with quite a bit of eye rolling and frustration at their outdated information, for one. I'm not sure a device that needs replacing pods every thee months will be economical.  There are other issues I have with its design too - or perhaps just the article.  Don't want to get off topic here, so I'll stop at that. 
anaphylaxis to tree nuts, peanuts, and potatoes; severe dairy intolerance; vegan (preference)
family members allergic to dairy, egg, peanut, sesame, shellfish
