Case Summary:

NutriMost is settling a case brought by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleging that the company’s claims for its Ultimate Fat Loss System are false. NutriMost advertised its system as a new technology that would allow users to lose 20 to 40 pounds or more in 40 days, safely and without following a restrictive diet. The FTC asserts that the claims are false and that the company’s endorsements were made by people with ties to the company. The system cost $1,895 and purchasers had to sign agreements not to post negative comments or reviews online. The settlement with the FTC imposes a $32 million penalty on the company, which will be suspended as soon as the company pays $2 million for refunds to purchasers.
