FTC Challenges Ads for Kids’ Weight Loss Pill and Female Sexuality Supplement
On June 16, 2004 The Federal Trade Commission announced that it had charged three Florida-based companies and their principals with making false and unsubstantiated claims in connection with the advertising for “Pedia Loss,” a purported children’s weight loss product. In their advertisements, the respondents claim that Pedia Loss is an “appetite suppressant for children 6 and older” that “slows the absorption of fat” and “safely burn[s] fat.” The FTC charges that there is no competent and reliable evidence to support these claims.
