Taytulla birth control sample packs recalled over placebo pills

Share

"Given the nature of the issue, controls and inspections in place on the packaging line, the recall is limited to one lot of Taytulla".

Each Taytulla pack has 28 pills, 24 of which are active capsules with hormones.

The physician sample pack should have 24 pink capsules with hormones followed by four maroon capsules without hormones, Allergan said. Anyone who has the recalled pills is encouraged to call their doctor.

Consumers who have the sample pack product with the associated lot number should notify their physician to arrange a return.

Four placebo capsules were placed out of order, which the FDA says "may place the user at risk for contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy".

Allergan said it was made aware of the error by a physician.

Allergan also provided photos of the correctly and incorrectly packaged pill packs. Instead, the fault packs had marron placebos at the start of the treatment. Note the difference in locations of the darker colored pills. If patients have concerns regarding the possibility of an unintended pregnancy they should consult their physician.

The sample packs have been in circulation nationwide since August.
