Jennifer Rosenfeld and Daniel Rosenfeld filed a lawsuit May 22 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Target Corp. and Target Brands Inc., both doing business as Target Pharmacy, and unknown registered pharmacists.

The suit, which alleges negligence and includes a count for loss of companionship, also names Jenna Therese Cherchio and unknown registered pharmacists as respondents in discovery to determine if anyone else should be named as defendants.

The Rosenfelds claim Jennifer suffered injuries after receiving the wrong prescription on May 26, 2012 from the Target at 2621 W. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg.

According to the suit, Jennifer had switched her birth control from Sprintec to Nortrel due to severe side effects, but the defendants negligently filled her new prescription with Sprintec pills in a bottle marked Nortel.

Jennifer claims she didn't discover the mix-up for several days, during which time she suffered from debilitating cramps, menstrual bleeding, severe pain, vomiting and other symptoms.

The Rosenfelds are seeking damages in excess of $50,000 and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Evanston attorney Michael D. Poulos of Poulos Black PC.
