Court Closes the Doors on Company That Sold Weight Loss Supplement

On October 24, 2003, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)announced that Mark Nutritionals, Inc. and Edward D’Alessandro, Jr. have agreed to settle federal charges that they used false and unsubstantiated claims to sell their weight-loss product. The Federal Trade Commission sued the marketers of “Body Solutions Evening Weight Loss Formula” (Evening Formula), including Mark Nutritionals and D’Alessandro in December, 2002. In separate settlements, Mark Nutritionals is prohibited from engaging in any business activity, and D’Alessandro is required to pay $140,000 and is prohibited from making false or misleading representations about Evening Formula, or any other weight-loss product, including through the use of endorsements. The FTC’s case against one additional defendant is still pending.
