The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a nationwide voluntary recall for certain birth control pills.
Apotex Corp. is recalling four lots of Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets that have been distributed nationwide because of a packaging error that increases the possibility of unintended pregnancy.
As a result of the error, a patient may miss a pill or may take a placebo instead of an active pill, which could cause an adverse event or unintended pregnancy.
More information can be found on the FDA's website.
