The Federal Trade Commission Files Lawsuit Seeking an Injunction Against Marketer of Weight-loss Products Over Alleged False Advertising, Parker Waichman LLP Reports
Date:11/1/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 01, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers, is informing the public that The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has filed a lawsuit to obtain an injunction against the marketer of HCG Platinum weight-loss products, alleging the company uses false consumer advertising to convey the impression that its products are capable of bringing about the swift loss of substantial amounts of weight. The lawsuit was filed on Oct. 30, 2013, in U.S. District Court, District of Arizona (Case No. 2:13-cv-02215). Kevin Wright, HCG Platinum LLC and Right Way Nutrition LLC have been named defendants.

The weight-loss products marketed by the defendants contain HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone in human placenta that “for decades has been falsely promoted by various marketers for weight loss,” according to the FTC’s Complaint. Products containing this hormone have already been in the spotlight as part of a combined effort between the FTC and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to the Complaint, which further noted that in November 2011 the two agencies jointly sent warning letters to seven marketers of products that contained HCG – a group that included current defendant Kevin Wright. The warning letter revealed that the products offered by those marketers were actually mislabeled drugs in violation of sections of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and also illegal, based on the FTC Act, which renders illegal any weight loss claims not supported by reliable scientific evidence, according to the Complaint.

“The weight-loss business is rife with companies using unsupported marketing claims to promote what are usually lose-weight-quick products or schemes that don’t work,” said Gary Falkowitz, Managing
