In 1849 Pfizer wasfounded by two cousins whose names are, Charles Pfizer and Charles Erhart. Thecompany that they created was geared towards the discovering and developing ofnew and better ways to prevent and treat disease. Its purpose was also toimprove health and wellbeing for people around the world. Some of theirproducts consist of: aldactone, accuretic, altace, and several others.Eventhough this was quite an astonishing company, with peoples health always beingthe first thing taken into consideration; a large problem had arisen. It was said that the problem was caused byboth mechanical and visual inspection failures on the packaging line.
The name of the product that has been recalled islo/ovral. Women taking two types of birth control pills made by the drugmanufacturer Pfizer may be at risk for unintended pregnancies because of apackaging mishap and a lot of other possible medical problems could occur aswell. What they did right in response to what happened was they responded in areasonable amount of time, accepted the full blame for what had happened. Theyalso recalled all of the defected packets and 1 million other packets so no onewould be affected by what had happened with the lack of peels being packagedfor women's 1 a day pill birth control packages. They also created a youtubevideo from a person higher up in the executive board saying that there was asituation, but it was taken care of. This was a great solution to a traumaticissue.
