Sunny Health Nutrition Technology & Products and Sunny Sia

Riverview, FL: (Apr-28-07) The Federal Trade Commission filed charges against Sunny Health Nutrition Technology & Products and Sunny Sia as part of its clamp down on dietary supplement manufacturers who market with false claims. The suit claimed that Sunny Health Nutrition Technology & Products and Sunny Sia allegedly made false and unsubstantiated claims for three dietary supplement finished products, including HeightMax, marketed to make children and young adults taller. The companies agreed to pay $375,000 while a further $1.6 million was suspended by FTC when they showed inability to pay. On finding out that Sunny had kept at least $1.8 million in an undisclosed account, FTC showed potential infringers it means business and enforced the collection of the full $1.9 million. The FTC rang in the New Year with a $25 million clamp-down on parties behind the deceptive marketing of four major weight-control supplements: Xenadrine EFX, CortiSlim, TrimSpa, and One-A-Day WeightSmart, in its ongoing efforts to punish dietary supplement companies that do not respect regulations.
