Glade Anti-Flu Stranger Spray Hits Store ShelvesSubmitted by chris cudnoski on Fri, 01/25/2013 - 00:54
The growing number of Americans who don't trust vaccines or just don't like needles can rest easy this winter flu season, thanks to a new innovation from Johnson % Johnson.
It's called BUG-OFF, and it's a topical antiviral spray that can be applied to the face and hands of up to 60 people who look like they may be sick, without causing eye or skin irritation.
The product is available in 3 fragrances and 2 flavors - cherry breeze and grape gumdrop. An unscented version is also available for workplaces and other fragrance-free zones.
A nationwide marketing campaign will include free 5-person sample size bottles mailed to the first 2 million people who mention the word flu in either an email or a conversation held within 20 feet of a smartphone.
