Some birth control pills are being recalled due to incorrect labeling that could cause problems for users.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals announced a recall of two types of Ortho-Novum birth control tablets.

The recall is due to the fact that the affected packages do not include the appropriate instructions for dispensing of the medication.

The potential risks of taking the birth control pills without the correct instructions could be breakthrough bleeding or unintended pregnancy.
