Preliminary injunction bans "Supreme Greens" infomercial.
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has won a preliminary injunction
] against Donald
Barrett, Direct Marketing Concepts, Inc. (DMC) and ITV Direct, Inc.
(ITV), as part of the FTC's case alleging that defendants deceptively
marketed their dietary supplement product, Supreme Greens with MSM. A
U.S. District Court judge found that the FTC has demonstrated that
Barrett, DMC, and ITV likely made numerous false and unsubstantiated
claims in an infomercial promoting the product and probably made
unauthorized charges to consumers' credit or debit cards. The
preliminary injunction, which prohibits the challenged disease claims
and any asset dissipation, will remain in effect pending the outcome
of a trial on the FTC's allegations. [FTC obtains preliminary
