Here we go again with recalls and no system to easily identify and hope nothing gets missed as this is an important recall so say the least with a tablet was more potent than stated. With Coumadin being a blood thinner we can all figure out what means. Shall we go back and revisit Dennis Quaid as a reminder? He made a movie about it too. The link below will bring more of this to light.

NEW YORK — Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. said Monday it is recalling one production lot of its blood thinner Coumadin after finding a tablet that was too potent.
The company said it tested a returned bottle of Coumadin and found that one tablet was more potent than expected.
An excessive dose of Coumadin, or warfarin, could create an increased risk of bleeding.
