Birth Control Packaging Error Leads to Recall – May 2018

On May 24, 2018,  Allergan voluntarily recalled one lot of Taytulla® sample birth control packs due to pill sequencing concerns. The first four days of the pack included non-hormonal placebos instead of active pills.  As a result of this packaging error, contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy may occur.

If you received a sample(s) of Taytulla, check the lot number.  If you have an affected sample, lot #5620706., please return it to our office for replacement, and use another form of birth control in the meantime.
