More than 100 women who say they got pregnant after taking incorrectly packaged birth control are now suing the companies that made and sold the products.

Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, now a subsidiary of Endo International, issued a voluntary recall for the birth control back in 2011because of a packaging error.


“As a result of the packaging error,” the lawsuit alleges, “the daily regimen for the birth control pills left women without adequate contraception and at risk for unwanted pregnancy.” The complaint does not specify exactly what happened to the women, except to say that they “suffered damages.”
