Birth Control Packaging Mix-Up Could Lead to Pregnancy
Allergan has recalled over 100,000 packages of its Tayulla birth control pills   (Taytulla)

Allergan is voluntarily recalling packs of its birth control pills in the US because of a packaging error with placebos, increasing the possibility of unintended pregnancy. The company says four placebo pills were placed out of order in the Taytulla packs. Per the AP, Allergan says the first four days of therapy had four non-hormonal placebo capsules instead of active capsules. The recall involves lot 5620706, which expires in May 2019. Consumers who have those birth control pills should arrange to return them to their physicians. (Meanwhile, The US Department of Agriculture is recalling more than 228,000 pounds of Spam over fears of "oral injuries.")
