Could it be they are....being used, probably by pax and crew that needed them? and are therefore critical?
Epinephrine "usually" has an expiration date of about 18mos or more, I think. Studies show it is potent well beyond that.
There are shortages of nearly all drugs from time to time.....but they are generally only temporary.
There should be someone at each airline that should be charged with the responsibility to keep the planes supplied.
Bottom line - someone at an airline is not doing their job and exemptions are too easy to get, IMO.
