Oral Contraceptives Recalled

Qualitest Pharmaceuticals issued a recall of several lots of birth control pills There was a packaging error that could leave women unprotected. 

The recall is being implemented because of a packaging error, where select blisters were rotated 180 degrees within the card, reversing the weekly tablet orientation and making the lot number and expiry date no longer visible. 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 risk for unintended pregnancy.

Cyclafem™ 1/35
Gildess® FE 1.5/30
