According to the Food and Drug Administration, morning-after pills labeled Evital may be counterfeit and unsafe and ineffective at preventing pregnancy. The label of the counterfeit pill reads “Evital Anticonceptivo de emergencia, 1.5 mg, 1 tablet” by “Fluter Domull.”

The suspected counterfeit label is pictured. The pill, which has not been approved by the FDA, is suspected to be in circulation in Hispanic communities.
