Thought some of you Bees might want (or need!) to know this…
There’s a big recall for birth control pills manufactured by Qualitest. There are tons of pills affected, including Cyclafem, Emoquette, Gildess, Orsythia, Previfem, and Tri-Previfem. The recall is due to a packaging error that reversed the order of the pills, rendering them totally ineffective. Here’s a link to the official list of recalled lots:
If you take a Qualitest pill, your lot number and expiration date will be stamped on the foil on the bottom of the back of the blister pack. If your packs are affected, call your gynecologist ASAP to get a new prescription. It is recommended you take a pregnancy test as well.

Maybe thats how women get pregnant on the pill…the machine reverses the order on occasion.
Thanks for sharing!
