Company Characterizes FDA Action as Unwarranted, Withdraws Two Cold Remedy Nasal Products Citing Commitment to Consumer Safety

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTXX) has confirmed that it received a warning letter today from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about two of its 19 existing Zicam products, specifically Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel and Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs. The warning letter cited consumer reports that the use of these products could cause a temporary or permanent loss of smell, known as anosmia. Zicam Cold Remedy oral products and other products in the Zicam cold, allergy and sinus lines were not included in the letter. The company has announced it will comply with the FDA's requirements, but will seek a meeting with the FDA to vigorously defend its scientific data, developed during more than 10 years of experience with the products, demonstrating their safety.

Consumer safety is and has always been the company's top priority. While Matrixx Initiatives believes that the FDA action today was unwarranted, it is voluntarily withdrawing Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs and Zicam Cold Remedy Gel from the market. Based on the FDA's recommendation, consumers should discard any unused product or contact Zicam at 1-877-942-2626 or visit www.zicam.com to request a refund.

Since Zicam Cold Remedy intranasal Cold Remedy products were first introduced in the market in 1999, more than 35 million retail units representing over 1 billion doses have been sold, and the cumulative body of scientific and medical evidence compiled over those years has demonstrated both the safety and efficacy of Zicam intranasal cold remedy products under conditions of ordinary use. Zicam Cold Remedy products have
