DSSRC Administrative Closure #70

DSSRC contacted a direct selling company about two Facebook posts disseminated by the company’s salesforce members that conveyed product performance stating and/or implying that the company’s products can help prevent or treat COVID-19. Both posts came to DSSRC’s attention pursuant to its independent monitoring of advertising in the direct selling marketplace.

In less than a day, the company was able to contact the salesforce members responsible for the posts and successfully have the claims removed. As a result of the company’s prompt action, DSSRC administratively closed the inquiry.
