DSSRC Administrative Closure #152
The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding three Facebook posts made by salesforce members of the Company. DSSRC was concerned that the three Facebook posts contained strong health-related product performance claims including but not limited to claims that certain of the Company’s products can treat and/or prevent chronic migraines, cancer, anxiety and epilepsy.
The Company promptly responded to DSSRC’s inquiry stating that two of the three social media posts in question were removed while one was modified. DSSRC independently confirmed the removal of the posts.
As a result of the Company’s prompt, good faith actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
