Trade Your Smelly Lipitor Bottle for a Vegetarian Starter Kit!

Vegetarian Starter KitAre you one of the hundreds of thousands who had to dump their Lipitor pills due to Pfizer’s recall?

Drugmaker Pfizer recently expanded its recall of the cholesterol-lowering drug Lipitor after reports of a musty odor in more bottles. This recall affects 38,000 bottles, on top of the more than 300,000 bottles recalled for the same reason in the last few months.

Drug recalls cause consumers stress and hassle, but PCRM is turning the Lipitor recall into an opportunity to try a healthier alternative. Send us your stinky Lipitor bottle, and we’ll send you our Vegetarian Starter Kit, free of charge.

Of course, you’ll need to consult with your personal physician before you make any medication changes.

Packed with tips and recipes, the Vegetarian Starter Kit offers a three-step plan for moving to a healthier diet. Plant-based diets are naturally cholesterol-free and have been shown to help prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

To participate in the “Lipitor Swap,” mail your empty Lipitor bottle(s), along with a note stating your full name and return address, to:

NOTE: You should consult with your doctor before making any changes in your medication, diet, or exercise routines. A diet change can alter your need for medication. For example, individuals with diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol levels often need less medication when they improve their diets.
