MLM Health Claims Audit Results

August 28th, 2017

A TINA.org investigation in November 2016 found that 97 percent of DSA member companies selling nutritional supplements had distributors marketing their products with illegal health claims. Specifically, TINA.org’s investigation found that out of 62 member companies selling nutritional supplements, 60 had distributors who were making (or had made) claims that their products could diagnose, treat, cure, prevent, alleviate the symptoms of, and/or reduce the risk of developing a multitude of diseases. TINA.org also notified each of the MLM companies about the problematic claims it found. Now, nine months later, TINA.org has conducted an audit of the health claims it previously exposed. Results from the audit are below.
