Birth control pills typically contain inactive placebo pills during the last week of a woman’s cycle, but the recalled pills may be packaged out of order, meaning women could take them out of order.

That could result in an unplanned pregnancy.

   L600518    05/31/2018

 

Anyone who took the recalled pills is urged to contact their doctor and return the pills to the pharmacy. If you have questions, you can call 1-800-399-2561 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Eastern time.
