Yes thanks Verna, it shows your concern. Even though it appears it may have been already dealt with in 2001, I wasn't even aware of it back then when it happened!


I must make a mental note to watch for drug warnings more often...

Anyone can log onto the FDA website, and be added to their mailing list for free updates, warnings and recalls.

Verna,
A couple hints for you....not everything you get in e-mail that says "Verified by SNOPES!!" is actually verified by Snopes. If you had checked it yourself you would have seen the True but Outdated status. The 150 people you forwarded the e-mail too would have thanked you but instead they'll just start sending your e-mails to their junk box with all of the prayer chains and pictures of cute kitties.

Also, IF this was really something to be concerned about you might have posted it under Health and Wellness forum....even non-Christians deserve to get product recall notices. It's nice that you were looking out for Christians though....I guess.

And please....edit posts that you copy and paste...no one reads them if are full of garbage text markers and stuff.

Phenylpropanolamine is no longer an ingredient in these drugs. That warning is years old...I wish folks would check these things out before posting, or sending e-mails.
