Pfizer Inc said on Thursday it was recalling all lots of its anti-smoking treatment, Chantix, due to high levels of cancer-causing agents called nitrosamines in the pills. Chantix was approved by the FDA in May 2006 as a prescription medication to help adults aged 18 and over quit smoking and is typically used for 12 to 24 weeks.
Only took them 15 years to figure it out. But it’s OK, it’s not like Pfizer is known for making the largest payouts in history for unethical medical practices, is it? There’s absolutely no chance they’d mess up again. Anybody who doubts their extreme honesty is an uneducated fool.
