Ortho Evra birth control patch recall was recommended
A former vice president for Johnson & Johnson has indicated that he was fired for recommending an Ortho Evra birth control patch recall and for expressing safety concerns regarding other potentially faulty products. This insider information that the birth control patch manufacturer ignored safety concerns expressed before the product was introduced, may play a critical role in the Ortho Evra lawsuits which have been filed nationwide.

Dr. Joel Lippman has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit alleging that Johnson and Johnson ignored his safety concerns and recommendations for an Ortho Evra birth control patch recall. Dr. Lippman holds a masters degree from Harvard University as well as a medical degree, and was earning approximately $1.15 million per year at the pharmaceutical company prior to his termination.
According to the lawsuit, prior to the launch of the birth control patch, concerns were expressed by Dr. Lippman about Ortho Evra problems which result in dangerously high levels of estrogen being released into users. As a result of the birth control patch side effects, thousands of young women have suffered serious injuries as a result of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolyism, heart attacks or strokes.
It has been estimated that over 1,000 Ortho Evra lawsuits have been filed by women who suffered serious injuries. Many outside experts have also called for an Ortho Evra birth control patch recall, since the risks outweigh the benefits of the contraceptive patch. Some have speculated that the pharmaceutical company introduced the birth control patch despite the known Ortho Evra side effects since they felt the profits which they could generate would exceed the amount they would have to pay to settle lawsuits.
