A pharmaceutical company has just issued a major recall for a massively popular product. The Food and Drug Administration has also issued a major warning as well.
Lupin Pharmaceuticals produces a chewable pill called Mibelas 24-F-E, otherwise known as “the pill” for women. It aims at preventing unplanned pregnancies.
However, after an error in packaging, the pills may fail as a contraceptive. The FDA issued a statement following the discovery.
"As a result of this packaging error, oral contraceptive tablets that are taken out of sequence may place the user at risk for contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy," the statement reads.
The FDA also warned that women who take the pills out of order could also cause severe harm to themselves and their potential child. At this time, no incidents have been reported.
According to Time, The pills are packaged in blister packs containing 28 tablets and were distributed nationwide in the U.S. to wholesalers, clinics and retail pharmacies.
