SIGNAL BOOST: Birth Control Recall

Share on Tumblr

Several brands of birth control are being recalled –they are:

  • Cyclafem 7/7/7
  • Cyclafem 1/35
  • Emoquette
  • Gildess FE 1.5/30
  • Gildess FE 1/20
  • Orsythia
  • Previfem
  • Tri-Previfem
Just saw this, peeps! Play safe, check your package to make sure you don’t have a recalled lot number and ALWAYS use a back-up form of contraceptive.

My immediate reaction to this line?
“While no immediate health risks are associated with the error, according to the press release, it could leave women at risk for unintended pregnancy.”
Only a Golden Girls side eye can convey my extreme WHAT THE SHIT face. Homicide during pregnancy is one of the leading causes of death in women… and an unintended pregnancy can precipitate DV or its escalation. Yeah, uh…. what the shit.

    1.4 million packs SHIPPED before QC caught this? What kind of incompetetent manufacturing business are they using? I’m not sure that little twitch is enough.
