RECALL ALERT: TAYTULLA birth control packaging error

Improperly packaged Taytulla

Allergan, the manufacturer of Taytulla, announced Tuesday that it was issuing a nationwide recall of one lot of the pills, totaling almost 170,000 packs, after being notified of a packaging error by a physician.

The pills in the recalled packs were placed in the wrong order, with the four placebos in the beginning instead of the end of the sequence.

The Taytulla birth control pills are from lot 5620706 that expires on May 2019.

Check your birth control, it might be under recall.

The packs contain 24 "active" pills with hormones, followed by four inactive, or placebo, pills that don't contain hormones.

The package is a 28 count blister card that has 24 "active" pink softgel capsules (with hormones) with "WC" printed on the outer shell in white to be taken for 24 days.
