Consumer Protection Unit
Supplement Direct Mailer and Website Settles $700,000 Consumer Protection Lawsuit
Dietary supplement marketers Mile High Madison Group, Inc., Nordic Clinical, Inc., and its owners will pay $700,000 to settle a consumer protection lawsuit for misleading consumers about the benefits of Regenify, Neurocet, Resetigen-D, CurcuActiv and ApresFlex.
The complaint alleged the marketers made claims that their products would cure and help aging problems, repair cells, grow hair and reduce pain without scientific proof.
Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Deng said: “The District Attorney’s Office is committed to protecting consumer rights and ensuring they are not misled by statements not backed by reliable scientific evidence.”
The lawsuit, filed in the Orange County Superior Court, was brought by the California Food, Drug and Medical Device Task Force which consists of 10 California District Attorney’s Offices, including the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.
The Defendants cooperated with the investigation and will pay $690,000 in civil penalties and costs. In addition, Nordic Clinical has agreed to pay $10,000 in restitution to the Consumer Protection Trust Fund. The court ordered the Defendants to stop marketing their products without the proper scientific substantiation.
