(WIS) - A May recall of a birth control brand may not work as intended due to a packaging error that could lead to unintended pregnancy, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The Baltimore, MD company Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced on May 25 the issuance of a voluntarily recall of Mibelas 24 FE chewable oral contraceptive, with a May 2018 expiration date.
A confirmed market complaint led to the recall, the FDA says, and claims the pills are labeled in reverse placing the four non-hormonal placeboes within the first four days of therapy, as opposed to the active pills.
The recall continues:
The recall is for Lot No. L600518.
Consumers who have the affected product should notify their physician and return the product to the pharmacy or place of purchase.
Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact Lupin by phone 1-800-399-2561, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.
