Case Decisions

DSSRC Administrative Closure #160

The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding social media posts that were disseminated by salesforce members. The subject claims and social media posts came to DSSRC’s attention through its independent monitoring of advertising in the direct selling marketplace. 
 
DSSRC expressed its concern to the Company that the posts implied that the Company products are effective to treat health-related conditions including Covid-19. The Company responded to DSSRC’s inquiry and successfully had both social media posts removed from circulation.  
 
Based upon the Company’s prompt, good faith actions to address the concerns of DSSRC, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
