Case Summary

In October 2014, the FTC charged Gerber Products Co. with deceptively advertising that feeding its Good Start Gentle formula to infants with a family history of allergies prevents or reduces the risk that they will develop allergies. The FTC also alleged that Gerber falsely advertised Good Start Gentle’s health claims as FDA-approved. The stipulated court order announced today, which the court has entered as final, settles the FTC’s charges and prohibits Gerber from similar conduct in the future.
