Pfizer announces recall of 1 million birth control packs due to packaging error
Pfizer has announced the recall of nearly one million packs of the oral contraceptive pills, L0/Ovral-28 tablets, due to an error that may increase the chance that a woman could become pregnant.
The recalled products include 14 lots of the Lo/Ovral-28 tablets as well as the generic versions of it. The generic versions include, Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestrel. It was found that the packets involved in the recall have either too many or too few active tablets in them.
A normal package is supposed to consist of 21 hormone tablets and 2 sugar pills, or inactive tablets. A packaging and inspection error caused the number of active pills to be incorrect. The affected packs have expiration dates between July 2013 and March 2014.
If you or a loved one has taken a defective pharmaceutical product that was later recalled and suffered from the side effects, you need representation on your side that may be able to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
