Barr Laboratories Has Recalled Nortrel 7/7/7 28 Day Oral Contraceptive

(SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Barr Laboratories announced a voluntary recall of 3 lots of its Nortrel 7/7/7 ? 28 day (norethindrone and ethinyl estradiol tablets, USP) oral contraceptive product. The recall involves Lot Numbers 290122001, 290122002 and 290122003 and is being implemented because two individuals notified the company that the color-coded tablets in their product blister cards were in an improper sequence. Any woman who has received a Nortrel 7/7/7 ? 28 day blister card with tablets in the wrong sequence could be at an increased risk of pregnancy. In addition, changes to the menstrual cycle, including delayed bleeding, irregular bleeding or spotting, may occur.
