Qualitest Pharmaceuticals Issues a Nationwide Voluntary Recall of Oral Contraceptives
Date:9/15/2011

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualitest Pharmaceuticals today issued a voluntary, nationwide, retail-level recall of multiple lots of oral contraceptives. 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 no longer visible.  This packaging error and the potential for this error to have affected other oral contraceptive products resulted in the company issuing the recall of multiple lots.

As a result of this packaging error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception, and at risk for unintended pregnancy.  These packaging defects do not pose any immediate health risks.  However, consumers exposed to affected packaging should begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately and consult their health care provider or pharmacist.   Pharmacies are being instructed to contact consumers who have received affected product.  

Qualitest is dedicated to ensuring the safe and effective use of its products, including oral contraceptives.  The source of the error is currently under investigation and the company is committed to rectifying the issue in a timely manner.

The recall is effective immediately and includes the following products:

  • Cyclafem 7/7/7
  • Cyclafem™  1/35
  • Emoquette
  • Gildess® FE 1.5/30
  • Gildess® FE 1/20
  • Orsythia
  • Previfem ®
  • Tri-Previfem®
