WARNER-LAMBERT SEEKS TO STOP IMITATION OF COOL MINT LISTERINE

 WARNER-LAMBERT SEEKS TO STOP IMITATION OF COOL MINT LISTERINE
 MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Warner-Lambert Company (NYSE: WLA) announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against Perrigo Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRGO) and L. Perrigo of Allegan, Mich. that alleges they are selling a product that deceptively imitates new COOL MINT LISTERINE mouthwash. The Warner-Lambert complaint, No. 3-92CV1811- G, was filed on Friday, Sept. 4, in United States District Court in Dallas. The complaint asserts that Perrigo has copied COOL MINT LISTERINE's unique teal blue color and familiar barbell-shaped bottle, resulting in consumer confusion.
 Perrigo is also charged with making false claims that its product is the same as or equivalent to Warner-Lambert's, when, in fact, it is not the same formula and lacks the American Dental Association's Seal of Acceptance for helping to prevent plaque and the gum disease gingivitis.
 Warner-Lambert is asking the court for an injunction against the continued marketing by Perrigo of the imitation product and is also seeking damages.
 Warner-Lambert is a worldwide company devoted to developing, manufacturing and marketing quality health care and consumer products. It employs approximately 34,000 people.
