Wrigley's Gum Informative - Here's something to chew on!
I'm not really sure where to categorize this comment. I was initially going to post a compliment towards the flavor of the gum, but after remembering something in the back of my head about a lawsuit, I decided to just make it middle of the road and classify it as informative.
First the compliment. The eclipse wintergreen has to be the strongest flavored gum on the market, or at least that I've found so far. It's the equivalent of crushing 5 tin cans of altoids and cramming them into one small piece of gum. I literally saw a coworker get tears in her eyes from the initial blast.
Now the informative. Apparently, as seen on the label, the product claims to kill germs. A lawsuit was filed and settled in June of 2010, thus Wrigley agreed to remove the false advertising. I just bought this container last week. My question is, "Are they allowed to leave the product on the shelves in a case like this, or should they be recalled"? In my opinion, recalls seem to be more for imminent health concerns, and not advertising. But who's to say that the next person that purchases one of these, then doesn't turn around and attempt the same lawsuit?
From a personal standpoint, I could careless what it advertises, so long as it tastes good.
