“As a result of this packaging error, oral contraceptive tablets that are taken out of sequence may place the user at risk for contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy,” the FDA warns, adding that if a woman got pregnant on Mibelas 24 F-E, it could cause “significant adverse maternal or fetal health consequences, including death.” However, the FDA says, there have been no reports of this yet.

Lupin Pharmaceuticals is specifically recalling lot L600518, Exp 05/18 of Mibelas 24 Fe, and impacted packs will have four tablets with “LU” on one side and “M22” on the other first. (It should be 24 white or off-white tablets that have an “LU” and “N81” on them first.)

If you have one of the recalled versions of Mibelas 24 F-E, the FDA recommends that you return it to wherever you bought it from and contact your doctor if you have any concerns.
