Popular birth control packs recalled after pills placed out of order

Popular birth control packs recalled after pills placed out of order

Allergan is recalling nearly 170,000 sample packs of birth control pills because placebo and active capsules were packaged out of order, heightening the risk of unwanted pregnancy.

Birth control pills have been recalled because they were packaged incorrectly. In a statement, the company said four placebo pills were placed out of order in its sample pack of Taytulla.

On Tuesday (May 29), the pharmaceutical company Allergan announced it was recalling 168,768 packs of Taytulla, a hormonal birth control pill that contains estrogen and progestin. The brown placebo pills should be the last four of the pack.

The manufacturer is concerned that users of their contraceptive may not notice the reversed order, thereby increasing the possibility of an unintended pregnancy. The remaining four, which are meant to be taken during the final four days of each pack, do not have hormones.

The pill pack is a 28 count blister card that has 24 "active" pink capsules with hormones in them, which should be taken for the first 24 days, followed by four maroon capsules without hormones in them to be taken for the next four days.

Anyone with affected packs are asked to call Allergen at 800-678-1605 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Allergan said it was notifying consumers by letter of the potential trouble.

Allergan is now notifying customers about the recall by letter, and arranging for the return of all recalled products.

Patients with concerns about unintended pregnancy should consult their doctor, the company said.

The lot number on the recalled batch is #5620706 with an expiration date of May 2019.
