PERRIGO COMPANY RESPONDS TO COMPLAINT FILED BY WARNER-LAMBERT

 PERRIGO COMPANY RESPONDS TO COMPLAINT FILED BY WARNER-LAMBERT
 ALLEGAN, Mich., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Perrigo Company (NASDAQ-NMS: PRGO) is responding to Warner-Lambert's (NYSE: WLA) announcement Wednesday that it filed a complaint alleging that Perrigo's recently introduced Blue Mint Antiseptic Mouth Rinse is competing unfairly with Warner-Lambert's Cool Mint Listerine Antiseptic Mouth Rinse. Perrigo stated, like other companies in the store brand industry, it has from time to time had disputes with national brand name companies regarding allegedly similar sizes, shapes, colors, labelings or packagings of its products. These types of disputes are not unusual in the store brand industry and are not material to the company's business.
 Perrigo Company is the nation's largest manufacturer of over-the- counter (non-prescription) pharmaceuticals, personal care products and vitamins for the store brand market. Store brand products are sold under a retailer's own label and compete with nationally advertised brand name products. The company's customers are major national and regional retail drugstore, supermarket and mass merchandise chains and major wholesalers.
