List of Recalled Birth Control

Did Your Birth Control Pill Get Recalled?


Pharmaceutical company Qualitest Pharmaceuticals has slacked on the quality part of its name, causing a recall of birth control pills manufactured at its factory. Last week, the producer of generic drugs admitted that a packaging mix-up put pills in the wrong places. The company said it didn't cause any immediate health danger, unless you count the risk of unintended pregnancy. The recall notice read, "As a result of this packaging error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception." Might there be a spike in births nine months from now?

The list of recalled birth control pills includes:

  • Cyclafem 7/7/7
  • Cyclafem 1/35
  • Emoquette
  • Gildess FE 1.5/30
  • Gildess FE 1/20
  • Orsythia
  • Previfem
  • Tri-Previfem

No, my Loestrin 24 Fe didn't make the list, but I can't believe 11% say theirs did.
