FTC Settles Claims Against Dietary Supplement Manufacturer

In 2010, the FTC charged Iovate Health Sciences U.S.A. and two affiliated Canadian companies with deceptively advertising that supplements called Accelis, nanoSLIM, Cold MD, Germ MD, and Allergy MD could help consumers lose weight or could treat and prevent colds, flu, and allergies. In settling with the FTC, Iovate agreed to pay $5.5 million for consumer refunds. Information about the refund program is available from the FTC.
