Four Companies Settle FTC Charges of Deceptive Weight Loss Claims

On January 7, 2014, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that marketers for four weight loss products have agreed to settlements over charges of deceptive weight loss claims.

Sensa was advertised as a product could be sprinkled on food to enhance smell and taste, making users feel fuller faster, and resulting in weight loss from eating less, without changes in diet or exercise. The marketers of Sensa will pay $26.5 million to the FTC so that the money can be distributed as refunds to people who have purchased the product. (The makers of Sensa have settled two other lawsuits over deceptive advertising in the past.)
