Packaging mix up could lead to unintended pregnancy

Posted on February 2nd, 2012 No Comments

A mix up with birth control pills and placebos could put women at a high risk for pregnancy and has prompted the drug manufacturer Pfizer to issue a recall.

Nearly a million birth control pills of Lo/Ovral-38 and the generics norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol are affected by the packaging error. The mix up could cause the contraceptive to become significantly weakened. Women who believe their birth control package is defective are encouraged to start using non-hormonal birth control immediately.

A 32 year-old woman has already filed a lawsuit against Pfizer after she become pregnant while taking birth control. The mix up is not believed to pose any health risks to the child should the woman become pregnant.

If you have been the victim of a defective pharmaceutical product, contact the Cincinnati drug recall attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC by calling 513-321-7733.
