Maker of Weight-Loss and Cellulite Treatment Ordered to Stop False Claims and Pay Consumer Redress
On July 30, 2003 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reported that a Canadian-based company operating in the United States under the name “Bio Lab,” and its president, Jean-Francois Brochu, have agreed to settle FTC charges that they deceived consumers through false and unsubstantiated advertising of their weight-loss and cellulite treatment products. The FTC alleged that the defendants made numerous false and unsubstantiated claims for their “Quick Slim Fat Blocker” and “Cellu-Fight” products. Under the terms of the settlement, the defendants are prohibited from making false or unsubstantiated representations about the benefits or efficacy of any health-related product, program, or service, and are required to pay consumer redress.
