Feel free to pass this information on in whatever way makes sense to you!

Oh, and I'm writing this amid stacks of seed catalogs and lists of seeds. While I can't grow my own vitamins, it's recalls and information like this that makes me feel so lucky to be able to feed my family from my garden!

What do you use as a homeschool log? I am planning on purchasing Edutrack this year to keep track of records. I haven't really kept track of things well up to now.

A friend of mine was telling me last year that prenatal vitamins were going to be recalled... I guess she was right!!!

That's lots of supplement products that has been recalled. Luckily mine was not part of it, because its all organic it comes from a natural fish oil.

I remember my doctor gave me this prescription that has folic acid, iron and zinc that helps for my pregnancy. And it resulted well, maybe you can check it here:
