Birth Control Pills Recalled, Could Result In Unplanned Pregnancy

A birth control pill that was marked incorrectly and could lead to unplanned pregnancy has been recalled.

Lupin Pharmaceuticals has recalled Mibelas 24 Fe tablets because of the error that left the pills being packaged out of order.

The pills were placed in the wrong sequence and placebo tablets are in the package's first four days, where active tablets should be.

Lupin says the tablets being recalled are lot number L600518 and expire in May 2018. However, because of the packaging error, the lot number and expiration date on the product are no longer visible. 

“These products are packaged in blister packs containing 28 tablets: 24 white to off-white tablets of active ingredients debossed with ‘LU’ on one side and ‘N81’ on the other; and 4 tablets of inert ingredients debossed with ‘LU’ on one side and ‘M22’ on the other side,” the FDA stated.

Those who may have purchased or used the pills in question should contact their physician immediately and return the product to the place of purchase.

There had been no reports of adverse events linked to the recall as of May 25.
