DSSRC Administrative Closure #14
DSSRC contacted a direct selling company regarding a product efficacy claim for its health and wellness products. More specifically, a claim from the Company’s international salesforce appeared on Instagram and claimed that the product can be used to treat COVID-19.
After receipt of the inquiry, the Company reached out to DSSRC and indicated that the post was not authorized or approved by the Company and that it had contacted the Company salesforce member who had posted the subject claim and informed DSSRC that the posts would be immediately removed.
