Manufacturer Issues Voluntary Recall of Lo/Ovral Birth Control Pills

The manufacturer of Lo/Ovral birth control pills has issued a recall for certain packs of Lo/Ovral distributed between January and December 2011. The recall is the result of a packaging error. The manufacturer states that “taking this product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences.”

If you took pills affected by the recall and have concerns or questions please contact the manufacturer, Akrimax, at their customer service line, 877-509-3935.

If you received packs of Lo/Ovral from the Virginia Department of Health you can return them to the local health department where you got them and exchange them for new pills at no charge. For more information contact the Peninsula Health District at (757) 594-7400.
