Mr J Brown

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Mr J Brown of Welwyn Garden City complained that an article contained a recommendation that a 0.8milligramme supplement of Folic Active was effective. The Government RDA is only 0.2milligrammes. He also objected to the fact that his letter to the newspaper had not been satisfactorily answered.

The newspaper which apologised for any problems with the original correspondence clarified the issue, making clear that the larger figure was consistent with the most recent recommendations, in a subsequent article.

Report: 62
