There is a warning to women about counterfeit versions of the so-called morning-after pill that may be getting distributed in the U.S.

The Food and Drug Administration says the emergency contraceptive drug Evital is not approved for use in the U.S. The agency says counterfeit versions that may not be safe or effective appear to be turning up in Hispanic communities.

Anyone who has experienced problems after taking Evital labeled as the 1.5 mg tablet should contact their doctor.
