Allergan recently identified that capsules were placed out of order in a sample pack of Taytulla, an oral-contraceptive. The first four days of therapy had non-hormonal placebo capsules instead of active oral contraceptives.
As a result of this packaging error, women who take oral contraceptive capsules as packaged may be at risk for contraceptive failure and unintended pregnancy.
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is committed to helping members get the care and information they need, when they need it. Members who have the sample pack product with the lot #5620706 and an expiration date of May 2019 should notify their health care professional to arrange the return of the contraceptives or contact them if they have any questions. Allergan is available to answer any questions regarding this recall at 1-800-678-1605, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
