In a massive packaging "mix-up," Pfizer, Inc. is voluntarily recalling at least a million packs of Lo/Ovral-28 birth control pills and generic equivalents that contain an "inexact" number of active pills. The error could raise the risk of accidental pregnancy for women.

In an unrelated product liability lawsuit, attorneys from the law firm of Dreyer Boyajian LLP are interviewing potential clients that may have been harmed after taking birth control such as Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz and Ocella. These pills have been associated with increased risk of blood clots, pulmonary embolisms, and other cardiovascular and gallbladder complications.
