FTC v. Med Gen & FTC v. Tru-Vantage International, LLC

Med Gen and Tru-Vantage must make clear when using testimonials in their marketing that users with atypical results are not the ordinary experience of users.


Med Gen and Tru-Vantage marketed and sold a product called Snorenz, a product to be sprayed on the back of the throat to reduce or prevent snoring for 6 to 8 hours. The FTC brought a complaint, alleging that Med Gen and Tru-Vantage had no reasonable basis for the claims, and that Med Gen and Tru-Vantage failed to state that Snorenz did not treat sleep apnea and they failed to advise users of the severity of sleep apnea and the need for a physician consolation.
