Feds Crack Down On Weight Loss Deals
It's a brand new year with many people once again trying to lose weight and focus on being more healthy in 2014. There are good weight loss programs and not-so-good weight loss programs. Makers of a weight-loss additive called Sensa will return $26 million to consumers to settle charges that the company used deceptive advertising claiming that consumers could lose weight by sprinkling the powder on their food. Federal Trade Commission officials said that the company used bogus clinical studies and paid endorsements to rack up more than $364 million in sales between 2008 and 2012.
