Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol Recalled Over Packaging Errors
February 27, 2012
For the second time this year, certain birth control medications are being recalled over a packaging error.
Glenmark Generics Inc. has announced a voluntary recall of seven lots of its Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets USP, 0.18 mg/0.035 mg, 0.215 mg/0.035 mg, 0.25 mg/0.035 mg.
The recall is being implemented because of a packaging error, where select blisters were rotated 180 degrees within the card, reversing the weekly tablet orientation and making the lot number and expiry date visible only on the outer pouch.
