CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble Co. has picked up backing for its challenges to paper towel advertising by Kimberly-Clark Corp.
The advertising industry's self-regulatory body recommends changes in commercials for Viva and Scott paper towels that have possibly misleading messages about absorbency and thickness compared to P&G's Bounty.
The National Advertising Division Council of Better Business Bureaus investigated the campaigns after challenges by Cincinnati-based consumer products maker P&G.
Dallas-based Kimberly-Clark says it disagrees with the findings but will abide by the recommendations.
