HERBAL WORLDWIDE HOLDINGS FATTACHE WEIGHT LOSS, FAT ABSORPTION CLAIMS may not be made without proper substantiation under a proposed consent agreement between the company and the Federal Trade Commission. In its complaint against the company and two of its officers, Jose Diaz and Eduardo Naranjo, FTC asserted claims made in a widely-aired Spanish-language television ad for Fattache were "false or misleading." The settlement agreement prohibits the Miami-based firm from making such statements. Fattache includes psyllium, chitosan from deacetylated shellfish shells, glucomannan and apple pectin.
