Recalled Birth Control Pills

Glenmark Generics Inc. USA today issued a “voluntary, nationwide, consumer-level recall of seven lots of Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets.”  The recall is being implemented because of a packaging error that was discovered when Glenmark received a complaint from a consumer, stating that she – “received one blister pack in which the tablets were packaged in reverse order.”

Glenmark Generics Inc. says “This product is used as an oral contraceptive indicated for the prevention of pregnancy, as a result of this packaging error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception, and at a risk for unintended pregnancy.” Glenmark Generics recommends that “consumers exposed to affected packaging should begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately.”

The last column on the right indicates the “Expiration Date.”
