|Case Name:||Rossi v. The Procter & Gamble Company,
Case No. 11-CV-7238 (JLL)(MAH)
Crest Sensitivity was sued for misleading advertising by the plaintiff. The plaintiffs allege that Crest Sensitivity, which is marketed as providing rapid relief from tooth sensitivity was actually identical to the regular Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste other than the addition of a inert food coloring! Crest charged an extra $3 per tube of sensitive toothpaste. Procter and Gamble (owners of Crest) deny the accusation, but the case was settled prior to being adjudicated by a court.
If true, Crest’s ploy to market the standard toothpaste as treating tooth sensitivity was extraordinarily cynical and deceptive. Adding green food coloring to the standard toothpaste, and then preying on people with sensitive teeth to extract at extra $3 is the kind of thing you would expect from patent medicine hucksters in the 1800s, not from Procter and Gamble one of the most well respected companies in the world.
