In 2011, Shanta Russel, found she was pregnant. She also got a recall notice from Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, who said the pills were placed in the wrong order, defeating the very purpose of birth control pills.
Shanta gave birth to a baby girl in 2012. Obviously, she was not mentally prepared for the pregnancy. She has now filed a case on February 6th against Qualitest and its parent corporation, who looked into the packaging the pills.
She has asked for reimbursement of health care costs and the emotional turmoil of an unwanted and unprepared pregnancy. "I was devastated. I questioned myself. After all these years, how could this happen? Of course I was angry. There was nothing I did that was a mistake", said Shanta.
