Nationwide Recall on Birth Control Pills
A company that makes birth control pills has issued a nationwide recall because the packaging lacks appropriate instructions for the dispenser. Janssen Pharmaceuticals is warning users that one lot of Ortho-Novum 1/35 tablets and two lots of Ortho-Novum 7/7/7 tablets. More details about this recall HERE.
From the FDA:
The potential risk of taking ORTHO-NOVUM® without the appropriate instructions for correct use of the Veridate® dispenser pack is that the consumer could take the pills in the incorrect order (still receiving an effective dose) or could take an inactive "reminder" pill instead of an "active" pill which could lead to breakthrough bleeding or an unintended pregnancy.
