Kraft Kraft Protection for Peanuts: Get Reimbursed For Your EpiPen/Epinephrine Injector Out-of-Pocket Costs Protection for Peanuts

get this deal

Kraft Peanut Butter has launched a program to help Canadians offset the cost of epinephrine injectors (like EpiPens). Called Protection for Peanuts, they're aiming to make epinephrine auto-injector cost the same as a jar of peanut butter. (Less than 50% of Canadians with food allergies have easy, affordable access to epinephrine auto-injectors.)

To help Canadians with epinephrine auto-injector costs, they've launched an online reimbursement form. You'll have to provide details like your name, address and the amount you paid out-of-pocket for your epinephrine injectors. You will also need to provide a receipt. There is a limit of one reimbursement submission per person.

You can read more about the program here, and you can access the online reimbursement form here.

    • That's a really great program. The cost of each injector is about $100 and they only last 1 year before they need to be replaced. It gets expensive very fast.

      An expired one is a lot better than nothing.
      If you have some that expires, please keep them on hand for emergency purposes.

      This could save a life at your home

    • So instead of KRAFT having proper manufacturing protocols so that peanuts do not appear where there are not supposed to, they will give up a free Epiphen. And some here are delighted!

      Kraft has no control over what people do after they consume peanut products: "A Sherbrooke mother hopes her daughter's 2012 death will help send a clear message about severe allergies.Myriam Ducré-Lemay was 20 years old and hadn’t told her boyfriend she was severely allergic to peanuts. They kissed after he had eaten a peanut butter sandwich, and it proved fatal for the young woman." https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/killed-by-a ... -1.2935902

      The cost of epipens has increased dramatically in the past couple of years. They are used for many anaphylactic reactions, not just peanut allergies. Good on Kraft for offering this program.

    • Thanks OP. I have Anaphylaxis and lucky to get it thru insurance without paying full price. Life saving device. Great for people who need it and do not have insurance.

      You do realize that Kraft makes peanut butter don't you? I'm guessing you never thought that far.

      Is what they're doing altruistic? I doubt it as I'm sure this is being done to generate positive publicity, but you if someone offers you free epinephrine pens are you going to say no?

      Marketing is marketing but I have to tell it works. This makes me want to support kraft more than watching a commercial does.

      They are going to sell peanut butter - that we can't eat - no matter what. They are going to spend money to advertise no matter what. Why not support advertising that actually can help people.

      It's real money - we have good insurance but it only covers 80%.

    • People pissing on Kraft, have you stopped and wonder why epi pen is $120-$$130 for literally 0.5 ml.of drug? The drug itself doesn't cost more than few cents. Now that's real greed for a life saving drug.

      I always wondered why can't there be a trade in system where you give back the expired one for some money. The injector itself doesn't break automatically! Only the drug expires. It'll avoid plastic waste as well.

      Or maybe an exchange program between people amd ambulance services where they collect your near expired products for use, as they'd be using it more often.

      Alas, i live in some hopeful world of exchanges...

    • I guess it's already generating some positive publicity here, RFD hates Kraft peanut butter and normally tears into it anytime there's a peanut butter thread :).

    • I'm going to call you out on this one as well. You have no idea how difficult it is to prevent cross-contamination in a manufacturing plant, especially given how sensitive some peanut allergies can be. In order to prevent cross-contamination, they would need to build a brand new plant at [u]minimum[/u]. That's like saying, buying your child with a peanut allergy a brand new house that only they live in.

      Go be a Karen somewhere else instead of being an idiot here. Good on the OP for this and much appreciated.

    • It's really difficult when it comes to anything medical. As much as we want to eliminate plastic waste, it's nearly impossible. Imagine reusing an IV bag that wasn't sterilized properly and you had an allergic reaction to a solution that was previously within?

      What you can do, is bring all your expired medication to the drug store so they can dispose of it properly and safely. Most people toss it in the trash which is the worst thing because that ends up in the water supply.
