Handout photo shows packaging and samples of Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol birth control tablets
Packaging and samples of Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol birth control tablets are seen in this handout photo released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) January 31, 2012. Pfizer Inc said on Tuesday it was recalling about 1 million packets of birth control pills in the United States because they may not contain enough contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. Pfizer said the birth control pills posed no health threat to women but it urged consumers affected by the recall to "begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately."
