More Birth Control Pill Recalls–Patient Found This Error with Pills in Bubble Pack in Reverse Order–The “Shitt
Posted Feb 27 2012 11:43pm
I goes pay to ask questions and look around anymore as you never know what you might find and obviously this woman knew her pills enough to the fact that she was able to recognize that the wrong colors for the wrong weeks were in the wrong places. This time it’s generic pills on the hook.
No bar bodes yet to make the recalled lots easy enough to find so worth a mention again so I can sound like a 3 years old broken record here as that’s how long my campaign has been going to get the drug, device companies and the FDA to collaborate and get this going. A few weeks ago Pfizer had their recalls with birth control pills.
Glenmark Generics is issuing a nationwide recall of seven lots of birth control pills. The pills are labeled "norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets."
Because of a packaging error, some of the pills were placed in the wrong order within the packs, according to a statement from the Food and Drug Administration . The packs contain three types of pills with varying levels of hormones, designed to be taken at different times during a woman's cycle.
Lot numbers of affected packs are as follows: 04110101, 04110106, 04110107, 04110114, 04110124, 04110129 and 04110134. The packs were distributed nationwide between Sept. 21 and Dec. 30, 2011. The complete name of the product is norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets USP, 0.18 mg/0.035 mg, 0.215 mg/0.035 mg, 0.25 mg/0.035 mg (Generic).
The error was discovered when a consumer complained she received a pack in which the tablets were packaged in reverse order, the FDA said.
