Excedrin and Bufferin are making recall headlines this week, but they pale in comparison to the 10 worst drug recalls in FDA history.

Recalls - Diethylstilbestrol
10 / 11

2. Diethylstilbestrol (DES) -- Maker: Multiple manufacturers
Recalled: 1975 (after 37 years on the market)
Financial damage: Steep, but difficult to quantify because each manufacturer paid out legal damages correlated with its respective market share
