Taytulla Birth Control Recalled Amid Concerns It Could Cause Unintended Pregnancies

Anyone who has the recalled pills is encouraged to call their doctor.

The company says there's a packaging error with placebos, which increases the chance of unintended pregnancy.

A nationwide recall has been issued for some Taytulla birth control packs after the first four hormone capsules were replaced with placebo capsules, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The manufacturer is concerned that users of their contraceptive may not notice the reversed order, thereby increasing the possibility of an unintended pregnancy.

The Taytulla pill pack has 24 "active" pink softgel capsules, with hormones, with "WC" printed on the outer shell in white to be taken for 24 days followed by four maroon softgel capsules, without hormones, also imprinted with WC on one side to be taken for the next four days.

Allergan said it is arranging for return of all sample pack products with the lot #5620706 Exp.

Allergan issued a voluntary recall Tuesday of a brand of birth control after some of the pills were put out of order.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on reports Purdue Pharma was aware opioids were being abused soon after introducing them but continued to market them aggressively and Allergan recalling its birth-control pill. Women who have the affected lot number should should notify their physician to arrange a return. Allergan said that the incorrect order is significant enough to cause pregnancy.
