Matrixx Zicam “Cold Monster” Campaign Claims Fail NAD Test

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

NAD recommends Matrixx discontinue using “Don’t let a monster of a cold catch you” in print and online ads because the claims “could reasonably be understood by consumers” to mean Zicam products prevent colds. ProPhase Labs, maker of the rival zinc-containing homeopathic Cold-EEZE line, challenges the Zicam ads.
