Merchant Law Group LLP has launched a national class action litigation on behalf of all Canadian women who have used “Alesse 21” or “Alesse 28” birth control pills and still experienced an unwanted pregnancy, due to a defect addressed in this Health Canada alert to consumers: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2017/65306a-eng.php

The manufacturing or other defects of these recalled lots of contraceptive pills is due to the production of chipped, malformed or smaller-than-needed pills, leading to lower effectiveness of this birth control drug and leading to unplanned pregnancies.  If you took “Alesse 21” or “Alesse 28” birth control pills from a recalled lot [see more information on the above website] and became pregnant, you may be impacted by this class action.

A Canada-wide certification decision has been made [see PDF here] and matters of liability remain to be litigated before the Court.

This class action litigation will seek financial compensation for Canadian women who have used “Alesse 21” or “Alesse 28” birth control pills from this recalled lot and experienced an unwanted pregnancy, due to the reported manufacturing defects. Please note, joining our internal contact list for this defect, creates no financial obligation for you and your information will be kept confidential.
