Mankato bar installs pregnancy test dispenser
MANKATO — The owner of a Mankato bar and restaurant has installed a pregnancy test dispenser in the women's restroom to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome.
Pub 500 owner Tom Fredrik says it might sound strange, but it took him about 30 seconds to say yes when one of his regular customers suggested it. Jody Allen Crowe is an expert in fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Profits from the tests benefit Crowe's nonprofit organization Healthy Brains for Children.
With the swipe of a debit card, women can buy a $3 pregnancy test from the vending machine.
