FTC Cracks Down on "HGH" Supplements; $20 Million in Consumer Redress
On June 9, 2005, The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that two Florida businesses have agreed to a federal court order requiring them to pay up to $20 million in consumer redress – the largest monetary judgment ever obtained in an FTC health fraud case – to settle charges that they deceptively claimed that their pills and sprays would increase consumers’ human growth hormone (HGH) levels and provide anti-aging benefits, including weight loss and increased cognitive function. In addition, the Commission has issued warning letters to more than 90 Internet marketers making similar claims.
