Recall: Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestimate Birth Control Pills

Posted on

According to news sources, a recall has been issued for seven lots of Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets after it was found that some of the blister packs of the weekly oral contraceptive were arranged in a reverse weekly orientation.

The company, Glenmark Generics, announced the recall after a consumer complained that the weekly tablet package was arranged in reverse order. The recalled blister packs also have lot numbers and expiration dates which may reportedly not be visible to consumers.

Those with the recalled pills should stop using them, notify their physicians, and return the product to the pharmacy. Consumers may also contact the company directly at 888-721-7115 for additional information.

As a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen many products being recalled due to improper labeling and understand the inherent risks associated with such recalls. I hope that consumers will learn more about the recalled product and be cautious of any known allergens that may not be identified on the product label. If you or a loved one has been injured through the use or consumption of a defective product, speak with a personal injury lawyer San Francisco to learn about the legal options available to you.
