Thousands of women in Californian State prisons may have been given falsified or incorrect results of HIV tests, biopsies, Pap smears, and other blood work processed by B.C.L. Clinical Labs. The lad was closed in 1997, but The San Francisco Chronicle reported in July  that the women had yet to be notified or retested.
