Qualitest Pharmaceuticals is recalling multiple lots of birth-control pills because of a packaging error that could lead to incorrect dosing and unintended pregnancies.

The company says the error caused the weekly tablet orientation
to be reversed and obscured the lot number and expiration date on
certain packages. The problem could lead to inadequate
contraception if women don't get the proper daily regimen of the
drug.

The recall affects certain lots of Cyclafem, Emoquette, Gildess,
Orsythia, Previfem and Tri-Previfem.
