(WFLA) – Allergan issued a voluntary recall of Taytulla birth control pills.

The pills were issued in physician’s sample packs.

Allergan recently found that four placebo capsules were placed out of order in the sample pack.

Specifically, the first four days of therapy had four non-hormonal placebo capsules instead of active pills.

The user may be at risk for unintended pregnancy as a result of the packing error.
