In Re Global World Media Corporation (1997), File No. 962-3210

Global World Media Corp. agreed to stop advertising certain aspects of its Herbal Ecstasy product to avoid facing a lawsuit by the Federal Trade Commission.


Global World Media Corp agreed to stop advertising that their Herbal Ecstasy product is safe and is without side effects. The product contained ephedrine, a compound that the FDA had determined could be dangerous in certain doses. The Company further agreed to ad a warning label to the product, and to cease advertising in mediums that had an audience of primarily people under 21. Product distributors were required to read warnings to potential customers contacted by phone before any product information could be given, and warnings were required to appear on written promotional materials. The consent order was to last 20 years, with significant record keeping and reporting requirements.
