Texas AG's Office: Companies Misleading Latinos with Amoxilina
From Latino Fox News:
'Companies from Texas and Georgia were misleading mostly Latino consumers by selling a dietary supplement whose name is nearly identical to the Spanish translation of a widely popular antibiotic, Texas authorities said.
Now the Texas attorney general's office is suing the companies, claiming their marketing tactics is deceiving consumers. The suit, filed last week in state district court, says the companies further their marketing ploy by making the packaging similar to that of Amoxicillin.
The antibiotic, Amoxilina, was once available in Mexico without a prescription.'
