Nature's Bounty, Inc. et al, 60 Fed. Reg. 25218 (May 11 1995)

Products sold to treat certain symptoms, such as hair loss in men, may attract the attention of the Food and Drug Administration as well as the FTC.


Nature's Bounty agreed to stop manufacturing products and selling them with names that implied the product treated the common symptoms unless Nature's Bounty had competent and reliable scientific evidence to substantiate their claims. Further, Nature's Bounty was enjoined from marketing a product to treat, cure or curtail hair loss or promote hair growth where hair has already been lost unless the product was the subject of a new drug application to the FDA. Nature's Bounty also agreed to pay $250,000 to the FTC.
