Hand Sanitizer Maker Agrees To Alter Marketing Claims

Akron-based GOJO Industries has agreed to tone down the marketing claims for its Purell hand sanitizer.  

The company will stop saying the product can protect against the flu and Ebola viruses.  The federal government asked the firm to stop marketing the popular product with claims that have not been confirmed by testing. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
