Wahaha Pulls Packaging That Claims Its Milk Boosts Breast Size

March 7, 2019: 12:00 AM EST
China’s largest beverage company Hangzhou Wahaha apologized to consumers earlier this month after complaints about an on-package ad showing a young girl praising Vitamin A&D Calcium Milk for its ability to enlarge breasts. The company claimed the ad was a real quote from a consumer. The company issued a statement saying: “Each and every quote used is selected from Internet users’ comments and we have obtained their permission to use them – it’s not a slogan.” Nevertheless, the company said it had stopped using the packaging after social media criticism called the ad misleading and vulgar. Last month, Hainan Coconut Palm Group, maker of a popular coconut milk, was forced to remove ads that showed large-breasted women in skimpy tops alongside slogans such as “I drink from small to big.”
