In September 2021, the DSSRC recommended Root Wellness remove health claims made about dietary supplement products on its website and social media pages, including those of independent sales reps. After asking for evidence of progress in July, the Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council is flagging the case to the Federal Trade Commission.
After the DSSRC recommended that Root Wellness remove health claims from its advertising in 2021, the direct seller has not made efforts to remove the claims that its ambassadors have made on social media.
Doesn’t take long to find health and wellness product marketers on list of direct sellers or find firms offering those products in the FTC's history of enforcement actions in the sector.
