Medifast Settles False Advertising Suit
The agreement resolves a federal complaint brought against the company over the lack of scientific support for the claim that consumers could "lose up to 2-5 pounds per week," which was made in advertisements for the "Medifast 5 & 1 Plan."
Jason Pharmaceuticals did not admit liability as part of the settlement.
Medifast offers a range of products promoted for weight loss, including high-fiber, low-fat packaged foods and protein drinks.
