I work for Sam's Club Corporate Communications and your concern over the pharmacy using prescription pill bottles to pass out candy was brought to my attention. We learned about this on Tuesday 6/23. We have determined that this is an isolated incident and that the practice was immediately stopped. We have also shared with all of our pharmacy departments that this is an unacceptable practice and should not be repeated.
At Sam's Club we always have the health and welfare of our customers and members in mind with everything we do and we deeply regret that this incident occurred. I did try and post a comment to consumerist but it has not appeared yet. FYI and if you need to speak with me pls. let me know.

Editors Note: Now this is what I'm talking about! A mistake was made by a large Corporation and rather than running and hiding, they OWNED UP TO IT and my hat is tipped to Sam's Club for being accountable.
Perhaps the people on the Salisbury City Council can learn a thing or two about being accountable and doing the right thing because this is top shelf in the corporate world.
Thank You Susan. I have been a Sam's Club Corporate Member ever since you swung the doors in your Annapolis, Maryland Store. I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars there as well as Salisbury, Maryland over the years and this is one of the reasons I choose to shop there and continue as a member.
In fact, (for what it's worth) on our last trip in our Motor Coach, we stopped in every City/Town along the way to Orlando, Florida to purchase ALL of our gas when needed. That puppy takes 100 gallons of gas and as many know they don't get very good gas mileage.
To Blognetnews, That's Influential!
Great news, Joe! I kind of figured corporate didn't know about this--it just seemed like such a bad idea to begin with.
Thanks for the update. I've updated our story on it and added a link back to the update on your site.
