3 mouthwash companies receive warnings

September 28, 2010 The FDA has sent warning letters to the makers of Listerine Total Care Anticavity Mouthwash, CVS Complete Care Anticavity Mouthwash, and Walgreen Mouth Rinse Full Action.

They are to remove claims their mouth rinses promote healthy gums or remove plaque.

The government says the claims suggest the products prevent gum disease when no such benefit has actually been demonstrated.
