This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The Federal Trade Commission requests $256.2 million for its fiscal 2009 budget, an increase of $12.3 million that would support 18 additional FTEs, including 10 to work on consumer protection issues, according to information prepared for President Bush's budget request issued Feb. 4. FTC says it will continue to investigate deceptive marketing of health products, particularly those making disease prevention or weight-loss claims. As an example of its enforcement work, FTC cited the January 2007 settlements reached following investigations of false or unsubstantiated claims by marketers of Xenadrine EFX,CortiSlim,TrimSpa and One-A-Day WeightSmart (1"The Tan Sheet" Jan. 8, 2007, p. 4). The commission says it will continue to focus on health care products, including dietary supplements, "focusing its law enforcement on violations that create the greatest risks to consumer health"...
