PSA: BCP Recall

Just saw this & thought I'd pass it along in case anyone needs to know... or stop at the store for condoms.

 

 Birth control pills recalled, may not prevent pregnancy

Pfizer said on Tuesday it was recalling about 1 million packets of birth control pills in the United States because they may not contain enough contraceptive to prevent pregnancy.

Pfizer said the birth control pills posed no health threat to women but it urged consumers affected by the recall to "begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately."

The drugmaker said the issue involved 14 lots of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and 14 lots of Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets. You can see the exact products and lot numbers in the table below.

It said an investigation had found that some blister packs of the oral contraceptive might contain an inexact count of inert or active ingredients in the tablets. "Correct dosing of this product is important in avoiding the associated risks of an unplanned pregnancy," a statement from the company said.

The pills were manufactured by Pfizer and marketed by Akrimax Pharmaceuticals and shipped to warehouses, clinics and retail pharmacies nationwide, the company said.

  • My mom called and woke me up at 6:30 this morning because she thought she missed an "I'm in labor" call-waiting call from me.  Then she proceeded to ask me if I knew about this recall or was concerned.  I told her no, reminded her I was 9+ months pregnant and overdue and that birth control pills were the least of my worries right now!!

    lol...I can't believe that your mom is reminding you about BCPs when you're that pregnant.
