Packaging Error Could Lead To Unplanned Pregnancy

Pfizer has issued a recall of nearly a million birth control pills after a packaging error could cause women to become unintentionally pregnant.

A mix up of placebos and contraceptives could cause the pills to become significantly weakened, potentially increasing the users’ risk of becoming pregnant. The brands affected by the recall are Lo/Ovral-38 and the generic forms, norgestrel and Ethinyl estradiol, with expiration dates between July 31, 2013, to March 31, 2014.

Women who believe their birth control package is defective should start using non-hormonal birth control immediately. The mix up is not believed to cause harm to the child should a pregnancy occur.

If you have been the victim of a defective pharmaceutical product, contact the Des Moines pharmaceutical liability lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233.
