MIAMI – A recall has been issued for a birth control pill that was marked incorrectly and could lead to an unplanned pregnancy.

Lupin Pharmaceuticals has recalled Mibelas 24 Fe tablets because of the error that left the pills being packaged out of order.

The tablets also lack expiration information.

Lupin says the tablets being recalled are lot number L600518 and expire in May 2018.

WSB reports the pills were placed in the wrong sequence and placebo tablets are in the package's first four days, where active tablets should be.

Those who may have purchased or used the pills in question should contact their physician immediately and return the product to the place of purchase.
