Apotex Corp Recalls Birth Control Pill Over Defective Packaging

John Curiel9 months ago

In coordination with the FDA, Canadian pharmaceutical company Apotex Corp. has recalled four lots of Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets, USP. Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol is an estrogen/progesterone contraceptive.

Information About the Birth Control Recall

According to WAFB9, the drug may contain defective blisters and incorrect tablet placement, while the package may be missing some tablets altogether.

Women who try taking the affected birth control pills might accidentally take a placebo instead of an active tablet, or the appropriate tablet could be missing. Taking birth control pills the wrong way could  lead to unplanned pregnancy and other health complications.

Currently, there are no reports of unplanned pregnancy attributed to the affected pills.

FDA Urges Women to Consult Pharmacy and Healthcare Provider

The FDA urges women to return the affected pills to their local pharmacy and consult with their physician about possible alternatives.

The following lots are part of the recall:

  • 7DY008A
  • 7DY009A
  • 7DY010A
  • 7DY011A

The package contains 21 active yellow tablets and seven placebo tablets.
