Out of date anaphylactic medicine

My manager told me that a 7 year old boy died because he had an anaphylactic (allergic) reaction towards milk and the epipen (injection to help with anaphylactic reaction) was out of date.
So they didn't inject it.
When the ambulance arrived... it was too late...

    sad to hear that, in fact in such emergency will it be better to inject it to get that 1% of hope rather than waiting for death?
