ABSTRACT
The author discusses the food health claims and the U.S. Food Trade Commission's (FTC) efforts in regulating such claims through consent agreements. She highlights the case of POM Wonderful LLC, wherein the FTC upheld that the company falsely advertises its products including POM Juice, POMx Liquid, and POMx Pills that violates the U.S. Federal Trade Commission Act. She concludes that Americans eat healthy foods only if foods claim to treat, prevent, or reduce the risk of fatal disease.
