FTC Settles Charges against Children’s Speech Disorders Supplement Company

By on January 12, 2015

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced a settlement with NourishLife, LLC and its owner, Mark Nottoli, pursuant to which defendants will cease from making allegedly misleading claims regarding their dietary supplements’ effectiveness at remedying childhood speech disorders.

The FTC filed a lawsuit against NourishLife for allegedly making unsupported claims about its Speak line of children’s supplements.  Specifically, the complaint accused the defendants did not have adequate scientific proof to claim and advertise that Speak products were clinically proven to support “normal and healthy speech development” for children, even if those children were affected by verbal apraxia or autism.

“Parents of children with speech disorders need accurate information about products that may be able to help,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection.  “This company took advantage of parents’ trust.”
