This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

GNC's $2.4 MIL. FTC SETTLEMENT "SENDS MESSAGE" TO DIETARY SUPPLEMENT FIRMS regarding the penalties associated with making unsubstantiated health claims, Federal Trade Commission Acting Director Christian White told an April 28 press conference. Announcing the largest civil penalty ever obtained by the commission for allegedly deceptive marketing, White characterized the settlement with General Nutrition Companies wholly-owned subsidiary General Nutrition, Inc. as "large enough to make a very important statement, both to the company that was under order and to other companies."
