Pfizer made 1 million women in American shit their pants this morning when they announced that they are recalling a million packages of birth control pills because they may not have enough hormone to prevent pregnancy. Oops!

“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,” according to a Pfizer statement on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website.

The affected types include Lo/Ovral-28, Norgestrel, Ethinyl Estradiol tablets. Some helpful advice from Pfizer:

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

OH THANKS I’LL USE MY TIME MACHINE TO GET RIGHT ON THAT. Good thing abortions are so easy to get these days!
