A Florida company is voluntarily recalling four lots of its birth control pills over defective packaging, which may result in incorrect tablet arrangements or empty blister pockets, and can affect the product’s efficacy. The company, Apotex Corp., said the recall affects its Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets, USP, which were shipped to distributors and wholesalers nationwide.
“As a result of this packaging error, where a patient does not take a tablet due to a missing tablet or that a patient takes a placebo instead of an active tablet, loss of efficacy is possible due to variation in the dosage consumed,” a recall notice on the FDA website said. “To date, no case has been reported for pregnancy and adverse event to Apotex.”
The product, which is manufactured by Oman Pharmaceutical Products Co.

It should contain 21 yellow colored tablets, followed by 7 placebo white color tablets. Continue reading [HERE].
