Diet pill makers fined millions for false claims

Following our recent discussion regarding diet pills, it is nice to see that the industry’s deception will be penalized.

Marketers of popular weight-loss drugs misled consumers

As stated:

“The Federal Trade Commission on Thursday fined the marketers of four weight loss pills $25 million for making false advertising claims ranging from rapid weight loss to reducing the risk of cancer.”

Unfortunately, $25 million is pocket change to an industry that rakes in over a billion dollars a year.
