Oral-Spray Sellers Told to Drop Hormone Claims

California and the West | IN BRIEF / COURTS

October 19, 2005|From Associated Press

A federal court has temporarily blocked marketers of an oral spray from making claims that the products contain growth hormones and can preserve youth, the government said.

The Federal Trade Commission said that Pacific Herbal Sciences, Natural Health Product Inc. and New Star Marketing Group, all of California, have been barred from marketing HGH Revolution and Natural Rejuvenator HGH-R -- which don't actually contain human growth hormone, or HGH.

The Oct. 6 temporary restraining order by the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California also bars the companies and their directors from using deceptive e-mail to advertise those products.
