Aquafresh to alter ad claim

Published on .

TV advertising for Aquafresh Whitening Toothpaste should be modified, a National Advertising Review Board panel said, to more clearly distinguish claims of superiority over Procter & Gamble Co.'s Crest from claims of parity with Den-Mat Corp.'s Rembrandt Whitening Toothpaste. The panel also asked the Council of Better Business Bureaus' National Advertising Division to reexamine an earlier decision recommending that Aquafresh claims of parity with Rembrandt be qualified.
