Coumadin Recall

Bristol-Myers Squibb issued a recall yesterday for a single lot of its blood thinning drug Coumadin. The recall affects certain 5-milligram Coumadin tablets that expire September 30, 2012. The recall came after an oversized tablet.
My dad ended up in the hospital once for a Coumadin overdose. But it wasn’t Bristol-Myers fault. My dad got the amount mixed up in his head and was taking like four times the recommended dose. So he started bleeding like crazy. (We still played tennis that weekend.)
