PSA of the Day: Pfizer has issued a recall notice for over 1 million birth control pill packets — marketed by Akrimax Rx Products in the US — because they may inadvertently raise the risk of pregnancy.
According to the pharmaceutical company, the recall applies to packets that were accidentally shipped with too many or too few active tablets. The imbalance in proper dosage of the drugs is not dangerous, but may elevate the chance a woman taking these pill would become pregnant.
Pfizer says the root cause of the mixup was both mechanical and QA-related. A spokeswoman assured customers it has been since sorted out.
This recall could not come at a worse time for Pfizer, which just today announced a decline in fourth-quarter profits, which it attributes to generic alternatives for their best-selling products.
To see if your packet of Pfizer birth-control pills is being recalled, review the list of lot numbers on the FDA website.
