Pfizer Inc. : Pfizer Will Remove Claims on Breast and Colon Health From Centrum Label -Reuters

07/05/2012 | 05:26pm US/Eastern

Pfizer Inc. (>> Pfizer Inc.) said it will remove claims that its Centrum multivitamin supplements promote breast and colon health from labels over the next six months, following a complaint by a watchdog group, Reuters reported Thursday.

The company will also revise websites and advertising for Centrum, the report said.

The report said the Center for Science in the Public Interest sent a letter to Pfizer Chief Executive Ian Read in April outlining its complaints and threatening a lawsuit if the claims weren't removed.

In a statement, Pfizer said it "disagrees with CSPI's concerns, but has agreed to make these changes in order to fully resolve the issues raised by the organization," Reuters reported.
