The oral contraceptives Yaz and Yasmin, the top-selling pharmaceutical line under the Bayer HealthCare umbrella, have been criticized by researchers and health advocates.
The drugs have been shown to put women at higher risk for blood clots and strokes. The maker of the contraceptive has attempted to minimalize these studies. Bayer financed a massive health study in Europe which found that the drugs do not put women at a higher risks for any health problems.
The Food and Drug Administration ordered Bayer to correct misleading television commercials, and then cited the company for not following proper quality control procedures at a plant that makes hormone ingredients used in the drugs.
Following proper quality control procedures is not an option when dealing with potentially life threatening chemicals.
