Linessa 21 blister packs contain 21 pills: seven yellow, seven orange and seven red. Each one has a different amount of hormones depending on its colour.
"Missing a pill, taking a pill out of the proper order, or taking two pills at the same time could lead to undesired pregnancy and other side effects, including spotting and irregular bleeding."
If your blister pack is packaged incorrectly, you should get a new replacement pack as soon as possible "to avoid missing pills or taking a pill in the wrong order."
What if your pack is damaged?
If your package is damaged, you can return it to your nearest pharmacy for a replacement.
If you can't get there, here are the steps to follow.
Take the "Take the next light yellow, orange or red pill in the order that you are due to take, following the proper order of the pills [...] and contact your pharmacist for a replacement as soon as possible."
Note that you should not "miss a pill, take one in a different order, or take two pills at the same time."
If you have already missed a pill or run out of the right colour, or are unsure which one to take, use a non-hormonal method of birth control, such as condoms, and talk to your pharmacist.
Is Linessa 28 affected as well?

She said she once paid $1.72 for a Pharmaprix bill that would have cost her $955.68. On top of that, she made $313.10 in PC Optimum points so she basically got paid to take home four full baskets of goods. Now, she's sharing her tips with you!
Aubert told MTL Blog she started couponing when she got pregnant unexpectedly at 18 years old while in a "precarious financial situation."
"I was able to save a lot of money for my baby's arrival and for our own needs. The money we saved went towards our other bills and baby furniture. Since then, I have never stopped," she said.
What advice can you share with Quebecers who want to start couponing?
1. Know that couponing is really 'a thing' in Quebec.
"Before I started couponing, I wish I had known that couponing is real here. Had I known, I would have started long before. I thought couponing only worked in the U.S.," Aubert said.
2. Understand the terms and conditions.
"When we want to start couponing, we often tend to get discouraged when we read our coupons because we don't always understand what the terms written on them mean," said Aubert.
She explained one phrase that is commonly misunderstood: "one coupon per purchase." When that phrase is written on the coupon, Aubert said it does not mean that you have to make a purchase in order to use the coupon. Rather, it means you get one product per coupon.
3. Get a PC Optimum card.
Aubert said PC Optimum cards are "extremely profitable, especially when used at Pharmaprix during promotions, such as the 20x points."
4. Take a training course or hire a coach.
"Take the time to understand before getting started and possibly getting discouraged," she said.
5. Don't invest in a printer.
Aubert does not recommend buying a printer in order to print coupons because "ink is expensive and we don't need to print coupons."
She said you can order coupons by mail on websites, such as Save.ca, as well as on numerous food company and product websites.
6. Do your grocery shopping and plan your menu according to the discounts of the week.
"There too you can [save] several dollars," she said.
7. Take advantage of price matching.
When stores offer price matching, it means you can show them a lower price in another flyer and they have to match it. This means you don't actually have to go to a further store to get a better deal.
"Make unbeatable deals to match the lowest prices elsewhere [...] without having to travel," said Aubert.
8. Be on the lookout for point offers.
If you have a points reward card, such as PC Optimum, look out for days when certain purchases have extra point values.
9. Summer is all about Chapman's Ice Cream coupons.
Aubert said you can request a $4 coupon by mail for free on Chapman's website. This means free ice cream, since some Chapman's products cost less than $4.
"A great way to cool off and enjoy a great treat... for free," she said.
If a delicious meal that's made with love from a local restaurant and saves you a bit of cash is your ideal take-out trifecta, consider ordering something with eggs.
Eggs add a boost of flavour and nutrition to any meal. A serving of just two large eggs provides 13 grams of protein, plus vitamin A, D, E folate, iron, zinc and choline. What's even better is that they can be eaten at any time of the day: before work as breakfast, during your lunch break or while you wind down in the evening.
With so many Montrealers living, working and doing pretty much everything else from home these days, Get Cracking and SkipTheDishes have teamed up to make it easier than ever for Montrealers to enjoy the protein-packed goodness of eggs any time — and with a discount, too.
Starting May 10 and running for a limited time, search "EggsAnytime" on SkipTheDishes and get $5 off an egg-cellent meal from participating restaurants. Be forewarned: you might just be tempted to order, eat, repeat.
Why You Need To Try It: Like a warm hug after a long day, ramen reigns supreme when it comes to comfort food, and Tsukuyomi's Chicken Tonkatsu is definitely no exception.
Packed full of noodles, pork bone broth, braised chicken, nori, spinach, bean sprouts and, of course, a seasoned egg (but would it even be ramen without it?), what sets Tonkatsu apart from the rest is the silky smooth consistency of its creamy broth that'll have you slurping the bowl clean.
Why You Need To Try It: Marché Italian Le Richmond's Capricciosa Pizza is a mouthwatering meal whether you order it fresh or for later.
It's not just the perfectly crisp crust and ooey-gooey mozzarella that makes this a delicious go-to, but the addition of hard-boiled eggs, artichokes, tomatoes, cooked ham and mushrooms. While a great dish for sharing, you might just want this one all to yourself.
Why You Need To Try It: Fleurs et Cadeaux's Katsudon features breaded and fried pork loin pan-cooked with dashi broth, egg and onion. Served over rice, it's a great protein-packed dish to keep you full and feelin' fine all day long.
If a picture speaks a thousand words, then this dish might as well pen its own novel because it's one you're sure to remember.
Why You Need To Try It: It's the simplicity of Ruby Rouge's fried eggs with shrimp — like so many dishes from this Chinatown staple — that make it as tasty as it is wholesome. It's the kind of meal you can even enjoy for lunch, dinner, on the go, or just 'cause.
Why You Need To Try It: You may be familiar with the Croque-Monsieur, but if you've yet to become acquainted with its spouse, the Croque-Madame, it's high time to introduce yourself.
Duc de Lorraine's Croque-Madame keeps it real delish with a fried egg and broiled béchamel atop a toasted ham and cheese sandwich. The yolk actually acts as a sort of sauce the second you bite into it, infusing the sandwich with even more flavour.
Why You Need To Try It: Hitting all the flavour notes that make a dish truly delicious, it's with good reason that pad thai is so popular. Springy rice noodles, sauce that'll send your tastebuds to heaven, scrambled-in eggs and veggies all colours of the rainbow making Soupe & Roll's Pad Thai as gram-worthy as it is appetizing.
Address: Currently 1008, rue Clark, Montreal, QC, for delivery.
Why You Need To Try It: Get ready to savour the flavours of Restaurant Jade's Minced Pork and Preserved Egg with Rice Congee. Sometimes called "century egg", a preserved egg is one that's been aged in a mixture of ash, clay, salt, quicklime and rice hulls. The result is an explosion of flavour that makes this ingredient a must-try, at least once.
For $5 off one of these dishes, search "EggsAnytime" on SkipTheDishes, select the restaurant of your choice and pick the menu item that grabs your eye. The offer is active between 11am and midnight every day during the promotion, and the discount will be automatically applied to your order.
Whether you choose warm and hearty ramen, delicious pizza or cheesy Croque-Madame, these Montreal restaurants have tasty, egg-filled meals that you can enjoy at any time of the day.
When you think of staple Montreal bars, which ones come to mind? Presumably, Pub Burgundy Lion shows up on your list, considering it's one of the most unique spots in the city — especially with its High Tea Sundays.
And even in the strangest of times, it's found a way to continue serving customers in a one-of-a-kind fashion. Starting May 10, you can get free delivery from this spot whenever you're on the Lachine Canal, thanks to its new "Pub On Wheels."
The process for getting your meal and drinks delivered to you is simple. First, order whatever your heart desires from the menu via Pub Burgundy Lion's website.
Deliveries happen at 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. every day of the week, and "orders must be placed at least 20 minutes in advance." Then, your food and drinks will be "delivered by bike on the edge of the Canal Lachine."
All alcohol must be accompanied by a food order, but don't worry, you can get fries for $1 when you order drinks. And speaking of drinks, Burgundy Lion's menu includes a "sangria pitcher" option, so you can enjoy sangria on the canal all summer long.
