(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A Salt Lake City woman is pulling her newspaper ad offering to sell her extra breast milk.
The 23-year-old unidentified woman says she was just trying to help.
Since having her baby two months ago, she has been producing too much milk.
She put the ad in The Salt Lake Tribune, wanting to help women who have difficulty breast-feeding their children.
But instead, she got joke phone calls.
Newspaper Agency Corporation classified ad supervisor Barbara Wright says she fielded complaints.
Those included a few from health professionals about concerns over the transmission of disease or drugs.
The Salt Lake City woman says she could have provided blood tests that show that she does not have hepatitis or HIV.
Nevertheless, she is done with the breast-milk business and so is the newspaper.
