Moulinex Juice Master Junior
Complaint from: 1 viewer
An advertisement for the Moulinex Juice Master Junior invited viewers to call an 0870 number to place an order for the product. Onscreen text stated "call free now".
A viewer complained that 0870 numbers were charged at national rate and therefore it was misleading to claim that calling the advertised number was free.
The BACC explained that the advertiser had made an error over the telephone numbers. It confirmed that the advertising was no longer on air.
The ITC concluded that the advertising was misleading and judged that it should not be shown again in its current form.
Complaint upheld. Breach of ITC Code Rule 5.1.
