Pfizer recalls 1 million ineffective birth control pill packs

Pfizer announced a recall of approximately 1 million birth control pill packs in the United States and warned users of the recalled pills to start using back-up methods immediately to prevent pregnancy. The pills recalled are marketed under the name Lo/Ovral-28 and as generic Norgestrel/Ethinyl Estradiol as sold by Akrimax…

There won’t be a male birth control pill
