"Let's go Krogering..."

This distract you from Hagel on the teevee!

Kroger Response to Emergency Contraception

ATLANTA, March 9 /PRNewswire/ --
The Kroger Co. believes that medications are a private patient matter. Our role as a retail pharmacy operator is to furnish medication using applicable professional standards in accordance with a doctor's prescription or as requested by a customer.

The Kroger Co. began carrying dual label OTC Plan-B in November of 2006, when the FDA approved it. It is our policy to carry the product in all of our stores.

If, for whatever reason, an individual pharmacist objects to furnishing this or any other medication, our policy is to find a way to accommodate the customer.

We are taking additional steps to make certain that all of our pharmacy teams have a clear understanding of this policy.

Good for them!! And if you shop at Kroger's', stop at the customer service desk and TELL THEM you approve.

Thanks for doing this. It always a good thing to say thanks to folks under assault for doing the right thing.

I actually work them in a professional capacity related to the stock market and will actually be meeting with the company over the next few weeks. I will try to slip in that we on Wall Street approve too!!

that was a bit of good news on this issue that was sorely needed. Don't think we have their pharmacies up here but I will send thanks their way.

This sounds promising and my first impression was favorable, but my wife thinks the wording is still too vague. It is possible that "accomodating the customers" could still mean, under some circumstances, sending them to some other store miles away. . .
