The Federal Trade Commission has conducted an investigation of certain acts and practices of Nutrivida, Inc., a corporation, and Frank Huerta, individually and as an officer and director of the corporation ("proposed respondents"). Proposed respondents, having been represented by counsel, are willing to enter into an agreement containing a consent order resolving the allegations contained in the attached draft complaint.

If this agreement is accepted by the Commission, it, together with the draft complaint, will be placed on the public record for a period of sixty (60) days and information about it publicly released.

5. This agreement is for settlement purposes only and does not constitute an admission by proposed respondents that the law has been violated as alleged in the draft complaint, or that the facts as alleged in the draft complaint, other than the jurisdictional facts, are true.

6. This agreement contemplates that, if it is accepted by the Commission, and if such acceptance is not subsequently withdrawn by the Commission pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.34 of the Commission's Rules, the Commission may, without further notice to proposed respondents, (1) issue its complaint corresponding in form and substance with the attached draft complaint and its decision containing the following order in disposition of the proceeding, and (2) make information about it public. When so entered, the order shall have the same force and effect and may be altered, modified, or set aside in the same manner and within the same time provided by statute for other orders. The order shall become final upon service. Delivery of the complaint and the decision and order to proposed respondents by any means specified in Section 4.4 of the Commission's Rules shall constitute service. Proposed respondents waive any right they may have to any other manner of service. The complaint may be used in construing the terms of the order. No agreement, understanding, representation, or interpretation not contained in the order or in the agreement may be used to vary or contradict the terms of the order.

7. Proposed respondents have read the draft complaint and consent order. They understand that they may be liable for civil penalties in the amount provided by law and other appropriate relief for each violation of the order after it becomes final.

In the Matter of
NUTRIVIDA, INC., a corporation, and

COMPLAINT

The Federal Trade Commission, having reason to believe that Nutrivida, Inc., a corporation, and Frank Huerta, individually and as an officer and director of the corporation ("respondents"), have violated the provisions of the Federal Trade Commission Act, and it appearing to the Commission that this proceeding is in the public interest, alleges:

  1. Respondent Nutrivida, Inc. ("Nutrivida") is a New York corporation with its principal office or place of business at 25 Chapel Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201. Nutrivida produces and distributes program length television advertisements, or "infomercials." These infomercials include an advertisement for Nutrivida's "Cartilet " shark cartilage capsules, a dietary supplement which purports to treat or cure, among other things, cancer, arthritis, and diabetes.

Respondent Frank Huerta is an officer and director of the corporate respondent. Individually or in concert with others, he formulates, directs, participates in, or controls the policies, acts, or practices of the corporation, including the acts or practices alleged in this complaint. His business address is 25 Chapel Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201.

  1. Respondents have manufactured, labeled, advertised, offered for sale, sold, and distributed products to the public, including Cartilet shark cartilage capsules.

This product is a "food" and/or "drug" within the meaning of Sections 12 and 15 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C.  52 and 55.

  1. The acts and practices of respondents alleged in this complaint have been in or affecting commerce, as "commerce" is defined in Section 4 of the Federal Trade Commission Act.
  2. Respondents Nutrivida and Frank Huerta have disseminated or have caused to be disseminated advertisements for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules, including, but not limited to, the attached Exhibit A (partial transcript of a program length television advertisement). Advertisements for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules have been broadcast in Spanish language television media, including Telemundo's New York metropolitan cable channel. These advertisements contain the following statements:

Narrator (male): "[F]rom the complexities of the ocean to the wonders of the natural. Shark cartilage. The shark does not sleep. We bring our cartilage from clean waters, without contamination. Its [shark cartilage's] marvelous properties are already known. It [shark cartilage] has been used in studies against cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and other illnesses."

Copy on Screen: "It has been used in studies against:

Cancer

Arthritis

Diabetes"

Dr. J. Casas: "My friends, as you all know, for there to be a tumorous process, for a fibroid, for a tumor in the body to grow, survive, it definitely needs nourishment. How do you nourish a tumor? How do you nourish a fibroid? Well, you only and exclusively nourish it through the blood vessels. It must have blood irrigation -- the main -- the best that shark cartilage has is that it inhibits the formation of blood vessels that irrigate and cause the tumor to grow. [T]his is a basic principle which has been documented various times, it is written in many books how shark cartilage has a predilection and goes directly to inhibit the growth of the blood vessels that nourish the tumor. Because there are no nutrients, because there is no nourishment, because there is no blood to nourish that tumor, it has no alternative but to disappear and to give in to the shark cartilage. In few words, my friends, shark cartilage is the medium by which to inhibit any nutrients so that that tumor can not prosper. . . . Shark cartilage has many indications of being a potent anti-inflammatory. For that reason, it is indicated in the processes of rheumatism, in the processes of arthritis, in bursitis, in the circulatory process, in all that has to do with pain and inflammation. Remember, it is important to always visit your doctor. . . . It definitely works, because in it we find elements that help . . . those cells and arteries that nourish that cyst, that fibroid, that tumor, to simply stop providing nourishment . . . malnourishment to the blood and that fibroid, that cyst, can no longer grow. The results at this moment are extraordinary. Thank God. Shark cartilage, like they have properly stated, sharks do not get cancer . . . ."

Consumer (female): "Dr. Pestano, I believe because the experience has been marvelous. I personally did not believe much in natural medicine, truly. But really, my son, who had visited Miami, came to my house and brought me . . . Cartilet. He said, 'Mom, try this.' I had suffered for a very long time from a pain in my left arm; my arm was paralyzed, I was tormented, I was desperate. I had taken other medicines, and nothing had been effective. I listened to my son and started to take the capsules of this wonderful product. I later learned it was shark cartilage, and it worked a miracle because my arm was cured."

Dr. R. Martinez: "What I want to emphasize is that to separate and place shark cartilage like a great medicine, as an independent weapon in the fight against these illnesses, is a mistake. Shark cartilage must be treated like a powerful weapon, but, within the combination of medicines and therapeutic possibilities we have; all natural, all complementary, but, directed towards the same end . . . ."

Dr. R. Martinez: "When we speak about inflammation, we also speak about cancer, about arthritis, about rheumatism . . . . [T]he results in patients with different types of arthritis are parallel to the results obtained with different types of cancer - regarding effectiveness. This all depends on the dosage -- in accordance with the individual's weight in accordance with the patient's immune system. But I repeat, the results with different types of arthritis were highly effective, without toxicity, and with little side effects. In comparison with the other weapons we have in the modern pharmacopoeia against these illnesses or to alleviate these illnesses, it has come to represent a step in advancement -- in my opinion -- extraordinary."

  1. Through the means described in Paragraph 4, respondents Nutrivida and Frank Huerta have represented, expressly or by implication, that:
    1. Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief, treatment, or cure of cancer;
    2. Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief or treatment of rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, fibroids, bursitis, circulatory problems, and cysts; and
    3. A testimonial from a consumer appearing in the advertisements for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules reflects the typical or ordinary experience of members of the public who use the product.
  1. Through the means described in Paragraph 4, respondents Nutrivida and Frank Huerta have represented, expressly or by implication, that they possessed and relied upon a reasonable basis that substantiated the representations set forth in Paragraph 5 at the time the representations were made.
  2. In truth and in fact, respondents Nutrivida and Frank Huerta did not possess and rely upon a reasonable basis that substantiated the representations set forth in Paragraph 5 at the time the representations were made. Therefore, the representation set forth in Paragraph 6 was, and is, false or misleading.
  3. Through the means described in Paragraph 4, respondents Nutrivida and Frank Huerta have represented, expressly or by implication, that studies prove that Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief or treatment of cancer, arthritis, and diabetes.
  4. In truth and in fact, studies do not prove that Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief or treatment of cancer, arthritis, and diabetes. Therefore, the representation set forth in Paragraph 8 was, and is, false or misleading.
  5. Through the advertising and dissemination of the program length television advertisement for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules, respondents Nutrivida and Frank Huerta have represented, expressly or by implication, that the program length television advertisement for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules is an independent television program and is not paid commercial advertising.
  6. In truth and in fact, the program length television advertisement for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules is not an independent television program and is paid commercial advertising. Therefore, the representation set forth in Paragraph 10 was, and is, false and misleading.
  7. The acts and practices of respondents as alleged in this complaint constitute unfair or deceptive acts or practices, and the making of false advertisements, in or affecting commerce in violation of Sections 5(a) and 12 of the Federal Trade Commission Act.

THEREFORE, the Federal Trade Commission this day of , 1998, has issued this complaint against respondents.

By the Commission.

ANALYSIS OF PROPOSED CONSENT
ORDER TO AID PUBLIC COMMENT

The Federal Trade Commission has accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement to a proposed consent order from Nutrivida Inc. ("Nutrivida") and Frank Huerta, an officer and director of the company.

The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for sixty (60) days for the receipt of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After sixty (60) days, the Commission will again review the agreement and comments received and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement and take appropriate action or make final the agreement's proposed order.

This matter concerns Spanish language television advertisements, including program length "infomercials," for the proposed respondents' Cartilet shark cartilage capsules. The Commission's complaint alleges that the proposed respondents made unsubstantiated representations that: (1) Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief, treatment, or cure of cancer; (2) Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief or treatment of rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, fibroids, bursitis, circulatory problems, and cysts; and (3) a testimonial from a consumer who appears in the advertisements for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules reflects the typical or ordinary experience of members of the public who use the product. The Commission's complaint also alleges that the proposed respondents falsely represented that studies prove that Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief or treatment of cancer, arthritis, and diabetes and that the proposed respondents misrepresented that their infomercial for the Cartilet shark cartilage capsules was an independent television program and not paid advertising.

Paragraph I of the proposed order prohibits proposed respondents from representing that Nutrivida's Cartilet shark cartilage capsules or any other product are effective in the symptomatic relief, treatment, or cure of cancer or that Nutrivida's Cartilet shark cartilage capsules are effective in the symptomatic relief or treatment of rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, fibroids, bursitis, circulatory problems, and cysts; unless, at the time the representation is made, respondents possess and rely upon competent and reliable scientific evidence that substantiates the representation.

Paragraph II of the proposed order would prohibit for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules or any food, dietary supplement, or drug, representations about the health benefits, performance, or efficacy of such product unless, at the time the representation is made, respondents possess and rely upon competent and reliable scientific evidence that substantiates the representation.

Paragraph III of the proposed order would prohibit for Cartilet shark cartilage capsules or any food, dietary supplement or drug, misrepresentations about the existence, contents, validity, results, conclusions, or interpretations of any test, study, or research.

Paragraph IV of the proposed order would prohibit for any food, dietary supplement or drug the representation that the experience represented by any user testimonial or endorsement of the product represents the typical or ordinary experience of members of the public who use the food, dietary supplement or drug, unless: at the time it is made, respondents possess and rely upon competent and reliable scientific evidence that substantiates the representation; or respondents disclose in the same language as the predominant language that is used in the advertisement, clearly and prominently, and in close proximity to the endorsement or testimonial, either (1) what the generally expected results would be for users of the food, dietary supplement or drug, or (2) the limited applicability of the endorser's experience to what consumers may generally expect to achieve, that is, that consumers should not expect to experience similar results.

Part V and VI of the proposed order contain provisions permitting certain claims that are approved for labeling by the FDA, either under the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, a tentative or final standard or under any new drug application approved by the FDA.

Part VII of the proposed order would require proposed respondents to disclose "THE PROGRAM YOU ARE WATCHING IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT FOR [THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE]" in television advertisements fifteen (15) minutes in length or longer, and to disclose a similar audio message in radio advertisements of fifteen (15) minutes in length or longer.

Part VIII of the proposed order contains record keeping requirements for materials that substantiate, qualify, or contradict claims covered by the proposed order. Parts IX of the proposed order requires distribution of a copy of the order to current and future officers and agents. Part X provides for Commission notification upon a change in the corporate respondent and Part XI requires Commission notification when the individual respondent changes his business or employment. Part XII requires the proposed respondents to keep and maintain all records demonstrating compliance with the terms and provisions of the order. Part XIII provides for the termination of the order after twenty years under certain circumstances.

The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order, and it is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the agreement and proposed order or to modify in any way their terms.
