FDA recalls birth control pill after packaging mistake. Registered Nurse Ali Gorman reports during Action News at 5 p.m. on June 9, 2017. (WPVI)

The FDA has announced a recall of the birth control pill called Mibelas 24 F-E.

Lupin Pharmaceuticals says there was a mistake with packaging.

The first four days are labeled as active pills but they're placebo, so they won't prevent pregnancy.

The lot in question is L-600-518 with an expiration of May 2018.
