WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Food & Drug Administration has issued a nationwide birth control pill recall due to improper packaging.

Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. says its Mibelas 24 Fe products were packaged improperly, so that the first four days of tablets labled as active pills are actually placebos.

No adverse effects from the issue were reported, according to the FDA.
