Nearly a million birth control pills are being recalled by the drug manufacturer Pfizer after a mix up with the hormonal contraceptives and placebos.
The specific brand involved in the recall is Lo/Ovral-38 and its generics, norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol. The packages affected by the recall have an expiration date between July 31, 2013, and March 31, 2014. A 32 year-old woman from Georgia has already sued Pfizer after she became pregnant while taking the birth control pills.
Pfizer strongly encourages women who believe they have a defective package to begin using non-hormonal forms of birth control immediately. The mix up is not believed to cause harm to the baby should a woman become unintentionally pregnant.
