US lawyer sues moutwash manufacturer over stained teeth

07-Aug-2009

Mark Rossman, a US lawyer, is suing Procter & Gamble, claiming its Crest Pro-Health mouthwash left him with brown teeth.

Rossman said his wife alerted him to the stains and after doing some internet research he discovered that the same complaint had already been made by a number of other consumers, an Associated Press report said.

P&G has not responded directly to the lawsuit, although it did say that '99.9 'of product users had not complained, and even ventured to claim that the tooth stains might be a sign the product is working.

Rossman has filed a class-action lawsuit against the company in Michigan, claiming that P&G is violating the state consumer protection act.
