U.S drug company Pfizer has recalled around 1 million packets of birth control pills because of a packaging error that may leave some without enough contraceptive to prevent pregnancy.
The affected pills include 14 lots of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and 14 lots of Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets with expiration dates between July 31, 2013 to March 31, 2014. All the pills are marketed by Akrimax Rx Products and have been distributed to warehouses, clinics and retail pharmacies throughout the U.S.
A statement released by Pfizer Tuesday says that Ã¢â‚¬Å“These packaging defects do not pose any immediate health risks,Ã¢â‚¬Â however some of the pills contain too few or too many active pills, which Ã¢â‚¬Å“could leave women without adequate contraception, and at risk for unintended pregnancy.Ã¢â‚¬Â
If you think you have the affected pills (lot numbers are provided below), WH adviser Dr. Keri Peterson recommends notifying your doctor, returning the packet to your pharmacy, and picking up some condoms asap! Get more tips from Dr. Peterson.
