The FTC Nails Two Companies For Marketing Unproven Products!

The Federal Trade Commission has  filed deceptive advertising charges against two companies that market products which contain natural ingredients, such as cinnamon and cedar oil. These companies allegedly failed to back up their exaggerated claims that their products could prevent and eliminate bed bugs. One of these companies also allegedly made misleading claims that their products were effective against head lice.

In the first case, the RMB Group, LLC and its principals have agreed to settle the charges relating to their “Rest Easy” bed bug products. In the other case, the FTC is beginning litigation against Cedarcide Industries, Inc. and others. The FTC is challenging their marketing of “Best Yet!” bed bug and head lice treatments.

Bed bugs are a growing health concern. Unfortunately, many consumers are unaware of the complex measures needed to prevent and control them.

The FTC recommends you read their publication, “Good Night, Sleep Tight, and Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite . . . Your Wallet”. They also urge parents to carefully research products that claim to treat head lice.
