Profeco will withdraw Maruchan soups: DETAIL ABUSES
“Just like them (BP)… there is Vips, who seem to sell us a stuffed chili for 35 pesos, when at 35 pesos he gives the ‘chela’ if you buy the chili and you don’t even know how he is going to give you the chili. That is misleading advertising, ”he told President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
“Long live Aerobus, you can fly anywhere for 39 pesos. Well, for 39 pesos or in the Suburban; however, with the very small handwriting, which cannot be seen, it says: ‘More TUA, more TUA’. That is misleading advertising, ”he added. Filed Under: Profeco To Recall Maruchan Soups
