Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on reports Purdue Pharma was aware opioids were being abused soon after introducing them but continued to market them aggressively and Allergan recalling its birth-control pill. Specifically, the first four days of therapy had four non-hormonal placebo capsules instead of active capsules.
The recall applies to Taytulla packs issued after August 27, 2017, and expiring in May 2019.
The side-by-side photo shows incorrectly and correctly packaged Taytulla birth control pills. The company learned about the error after one physician reported it.
Allergan is arranging for return of all sample pack products with the lot #5620706 with the expiration date May 2019 and urged patients to consult their physicians if they believe they are affected by the recall.
STAT points out this is just the latest negative news for Allergan so far this year.
