Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) voluntarily recalls 32M packages of its birth control pill Cilest in Europe, Asia and Latin America after tests reportedly showed that one of the two hormones in the product was being released more slowly than intended. J&J says that one of Cilest's active ingredients did not lead to "defined specification." J&J adds that the pill, which is not sold in the U.S., remains safe and effective.
