The manufacturer of Poligrip denture cream will change its formula to take out zinc. Denture cream products Super Poligrip Original, Ultra Fresh and Extra Care will be removed from shelves and replaced with zinc-free denture cream.
This is a great example of lawsuits making a difference. But for the hundreds of denture cream lawsuits that have been filed, Poligrip would certainly continue to contain zinc without any warning of the hazards of zinc poisoning. Of course, for those who have suffered zinc poisoning, this is of little consolation.
Glaxo is taking Poligrip with zinc off the shelves. Why not just call it a recall?
