FTC Operation False Cure snares firms

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The Federal Trade Commission resolves allegations against two businesses that allegedly made unsupported claims their herbal products treated, cured and prevented cancer. An FTC administrative law judge found Mary Spohn, doing business as Surprise, Ariz.-based Herbs for Cancer, guilty of falsely claiming her teas fight at least 16 types of cancer. A separate proposed settlement prohibits El Prado, N.M.-based Native Essence Herb Co. from making misleading and unsupported claims that its "herbal concoctions" treat cancer. The firms must announce the FTC findings to consumers who have bought their products since January 2005
