The drug manufacturer Pfizer has announced it will be recalling nearly a million birth control pills after a placebo mix up could cause users to become pregnant.
Lo/Ovral-28 and its generic forms, norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, with expiration dates between July 31, 2013 to March 31, 2014 are the brands affected by the recall. Women who believe they have a defective package should begin using non-hormonal contraception immediately.
A 32 year-old woman has already filed a lawsuit against Pfizer after she become pregnant while taking birth control pills. The placebo mix up is not expected to cause any harm to the baby should a pregnancy occur.
