June 9, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- One lot of Mibelas 24 Fe birth control pills has been recalled due to a packaging error that could put users at risk of unintended pregnancy, manufacturer Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. says.
In this lot, the blister is rotated 180 degrees within the wallet, reversing the weekly tablet orientation and making the lot number and expiration date no longer visible. The first four days of therapy would have four non-hormonal placebo tablets as opposed to the active tablets, putting the user at risk for contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy.
Consumers with the recalled lot should notify their physician and return the product to the pharmacy or place of purchase. For more information, contact the company at 1-800-399-2561.
