Birth Control Recall

Alabama 9-17-11--

Quali-test Pharmaceuticals, based in Alabama, is recalling several birth control pill brands.

The reason...some of the pills are in the wrong slots in the blister packaging.

That means women may be taking pills that are not the right dose and it could put them at risk for unexpected pregnancy.

Some of the affected brands include, Previfem and Emoquette.

The company says women using the recalled pills should use a non-hormonal contraceptive.

It says it's investigating what caused the mix-up.

      Abortions cost more than the pill, of course you would have to remember to actually take the pill.

    Birth Control Pills are used for other medical problems, not just birth control. Of course a narrow-minded, stupid person would not know that. Therefore, we get comments like the one from a person pretending to be Gov. Perry.

    GOTCHA! That'll teach you to trust science and not believe in abstinence! See Bristol Palin for details.

      You would be the first one to complain about paying for people on food stamps having more kids but then you say Gotcha! to people who went on birth control to try to prevent a pregnancy? What about the married women who were taking them...should they abstain also? Wouldn't there be an awful lot of mad husbands?

        Sara, you're using a sound approach and common sense in your reply. No one will understand it. ;)
