FTC Bites Back on Deceptive Bug Repellent Products
The FTC filed a complaint against Mikey & Momo, Inc. and its owners alleging that they made deceptive claims about their mosquito-repelling perfume sprays and scented candles, Aromaflage products, which they sold for $65 for a 50 ml bottle of spray and $40 for 7.5 oz. candle. The FTC stated that they falsely claimed their products were supported by scientific evidence, and multiple five-star Amazon reviews were written by one of the owners and her relatives that were not disclosed. Mikey & Momo agreed to settle the FTC charges that bars them from engaging in such deceptive conduct in the future and requires that they clearly and conspicuously disclose any material connections between a reviewer or endorser and the product being reviewed.
