Tobacco foes target Burnett

Published on .

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, which saw the Chicago Tribune last week reject as "disparaging" an ad aimed at Marlboro agency Leo Burnett Co., said it will hand out leaflets featuring the ad prior to a special meeting of Burnett staffers at a downtown Chicago theater Sept. 16. The ad from Smith & Harroff, Alexandria, Va., urges Burnett to quit handling Philip Morris USA's tobacco business. "Do right by America's kids and kick the tobacco habit for good," said the ad.
