As the result of a packaging error, Pfizer has recalled 1M packets of birth control pills.  A statement issued by Pfizer indicated that, “As a result of this packaging error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception and at risk for unintended pregnancy.  The recall involves 14 lots of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and 14 lots of Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets.  The company said that all women exposed to the product should switch to “non-hormonal” methods of birth control.
