Recall alert for birth control pills

Since I'm currently writing a series on oral contraceptives, I thought I would post this alert for a recall in all provinces of Canada (except Saskatchewan and Alberta) for Alysena-28 manufactured by Apotex. The code on the packages subject to the recall is: LF01899A. The recall has been issued because there may be two weeks of placebo pills rather than one.
