I allege that this program breaches S.18 of the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code (No.2) 2018
“An advertisement must not offer any personal incentive to a pharmacy assistant, or any retail salesperson who is not a health professional, to recommend or supply therapeutic goods”.

I submit that this is an egregious breach of an important consumer protection provision of the Code and my complaint to the TGA (AC-1M5393FG/2019) should be assessed as high priority.
I ask the TGA to order this program be rescinded and ensure a prominent notice is placed in all media where the program was promoted highlighting the S.18 breach of the Code.by
