5. Birth control tablets recalled, ‘could potentially result in unexpected pregnancy’

"Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Lupin) is voluntarily recalling two (2) lots of Tydemy (Drospirenone, Ethinyl Estradiol and Levomefolate Calcium Tablets 3mg/0.03mg/0.451 mg and Levomefolate Calcium Tablets 0.451 mg) to the patient (consumer/user) level due to out of specification (OOS) test results at the 12-month stability time point.  Specifically, one lot (L200183) tested low for ascorbic acid (an inactive ingredient) and high for a known impurity," the FDA wrote in a news release.

The products were sold nationwide in drug stores, pharmacies and supermarkets. No "adverse events" have been reported.

"Regardless, Lupin is recalling these two batches because if there were a significant reduction in the amount of inactive content (ascorbic acid), this could potentially impact the effectiveness of the product which could potentially result in unexpected pregnancy," the FDA added.

Consumers taking Tydemy "are advised to continue taking their medication and immediately contact their pharmacist, physician, or medical provider for advice regarding an alternative treatment."
