Contraceptive Pill Recall

We have learned of an oral contraceptive pill recall and wanted to pass the information on to you. Glenmark Generics Inc. has announced a nationwide recall of seven lots of norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets due to the possibility of out-of-sequence tablets in the pill packs.

Information about the recall is posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm293347.htm and on Glenmark Generics Inc., USA website http://us.glenmark-generics.com/. The affected lot numbers are listed in the FDA press release/recall notice. According to the recall notice, patients who have affected product should notify their physician and return the product to the pharmacy.
