Pharmaceutical error could cause unintented pregnancies

A pharmaceutical mix up in birth control pill packages has prompted Pfizer to recall nearly a million birth control pills.

An out of order sequence of contraceptives and placebos could cause the contraceptives to become significantly weakened, increasing the risk of unintended pregnancy. The brand affected by this error is Lo/Ovral-38 and its generic forms, norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol. Users who believe they have a defective package should start using non-hormonal birth control immediately.

The mix up is not believed to cause any harm to the babies should pregnancy occur.

If you have been the victim of a defective pharmaceutical product, contact the Charleston drug recall lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm by calling 843-720-2800 today.
