DSSRC Administrative Closure #125

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding two Facebook posts disseminated by Company salesforce members. DSSRC was concerned that the posts could be reasonably interpreted as meaning that the direct selling company’s products can treat or prevent several serious health-related conditions.

In response to DSSRC’s inquiry, the Company contacted the salesforce members that made the Facebook posts and successfully had both posts promptly deleted. Based upon the Company’s good faith actions to address the concerns of DSSRC, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
