Recall : Birth Control Pills
A nationwide recall is underway for Mibelas 24 FE birth control pills. The Food and Drug Administration reports the pills were packaged improperly. Some pills are out of sequence- some pills labeled as active are actually placebos. This packaging mistake could lead to unintended pregnancy. More information on this recall here.
From the FDA:
A confirmed market complaint indicated a packaging error, where the blister was rotated 180 degrees within the wallet, reversing the weekly tablet orientation and making the lot number and expiration date no longer visible. The first four days of therapy would have had four non-hormonal placebo tablets as opposed to the active tablets.
