Unicare Pharmacy Selling Fishy Slimming Pills

Plavsa Notice

Plavsa are still selling their fishy slimming pills, promoting them with a printed poster on the front door of at least one Unicare pharmacy in Dublin.

  • Last year the Advertising Standards Authority banned their print ads because they failed to substantiate the claims that they made in it.
  • Plavsa responded by publishing the same ad with slightly different wording, but were told that that was not acceptable either.
  • Now they are using a poster that makes no claims for the product other than it is ‘the new fat fighter’, and that it is ‘new to Unicare’.
  • Amazingly, despite limiting themselves to just eight words, they still manage to make two misleading claims. Plavsa is not a ‘new fat fighter’ and Unicare was selling Plavsa last year, using a poster of the now-banned advert.
