FTC Launches Law Enforcement Initiative Stopping Deceptive Advertising and Misleading Endorsements of Fad Weight-Loss Products


Early January 2014, Sensa and three other national marketers of fad weight-loss products settled charges raised by the FTC in an effort to stop “misleading claims for products promoting easy weight loss and slimmer bodies.” The weight-loss company, Sensa, will pay $26.5 million to settle charges that accused the company of exhorting consumers in their “sprinkle, eat, and lose weight” campaign. Charges were also announced against the companies L’Occitane and HCG Diet Direct for making unfounded promises to consumers. The combined total the companies are ordered to pay is approximately $34 million, which the FTC will use to refund consumers.
