American Home Products Maker of Rotavirus vaccine and NEW Prevnar

And by the way, American Home Products won't let you see the product insert on their website - you have to be a doctor or sales rep - so if there are no problems with it why not show it.

American  Home Product's recent track record in the consumer drug  area. Here is a list of some of the company's recent problems:

1998- American Home recalled their drug "Duract", a painkiller that caused fatal liver problems in some long-term users.

July 99- the company halted shipments of its rotavirus vaccine, used to prevent diarrhea in young children after it was linked to bowel   obstructions in infants.

August 99- AHP recalled 600,000 defective allergy kits used by people at risk for severe  reactions from bee stings, certain foods or asthma.

August 99- AHP agreed to pay $50  million to settle a class action law suite brought by  women who used its contraceptive Norplant. The drug was  reported to cause headaches, irregular menstrual bleeding and nausea.

September 99- AHP is involved in  an investigation being conducted by the FBI for allegedly withholding information indicating that their  diet drug "Redux" can result in heart valve problems.
