DSSRC Administrative Closure #184
The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding six social media posts. The inquiry involved a number of health-related posts which included claims that the Company’s products can treat Alzheimer’s disease and cancer and prevent diabetes and strokes. The posts were identified by DSSRC pursuant to its ongoing, independent monitoring of the direct selling industry.
While the Company did not directly acknowledge receipt of DSSRC’s concern, all six of the posts were removed shortly after DSSRC brought the posts to the attention of the Company.
As a result of the Company’s immediate, good faith actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
