Birth control pills recalled :

March 4, 2019

Birth control pills are being recalled due to packaging issues that may result in a patient taking an incorrect tablet or missing one.

The drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol tablets, 3 milligrams/0.03 milligrams, are manufactured by Oman Pharmaceutical Products Co. LLC. for Apotex Corp. Lots 7DY008A, 7DY009A, 7DY010A and 7DY011A are being recalled as they may have an incorrect tablet arrangement or empty blister pocket.

No pregnancies or adverse events due to the error have been reported. Apotex recommends patients keep taking their pills and use a non-hormonal method of birth control as well as contacting their health care provider. They can return impacted packages to their pharmacist. If the pills were purchased directly from Apotex, call 877-674-2082.
