"Hey, I recently found this tin can with pills included. I'm trying to find information about them. What year did discontinue this item? And any other information you may have would be helpful. "
My father used to use this product once a week in addition to the stewed prunes and he had every morning. This was his way of keeping in good health and keeping regular. I do not know when they were discontinued.
