NEW YORK —  Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer on Tuesday announced a recall of some birth control pills in the United States, because they may not contain enough contraceptive to prevent pregnancy.

According to a report from FOX News, Pfizer said the birth control pills posed no health threat to women but urged consumers affected by the recall to “begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately.”

The recall involved 14 lots of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and 14 lots of Norgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets, which Reuters reported involved about one million packets of birth control pills.
