WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Pharmaceutical company Pfizer Inc <PFE.N> has imposed controls on its products to ensure that none are used in lethal injections, the New York Times said on Friday.

The move shuts off the last remaining source of drugs used in executions, following similar actions by more than 20 U.S. and European drugmakers, the Times said.
