False Advertising

In California, false or misleading advertising is against the law.

Claims made by companies need to be grounded in fact, and companies are not allowed to represent products as something they are not in order to lure customers in.

There are hundreds of thousands of products and services that utilize false advertising techniques, including:
  • Bait and switch advertising campaigns.
  • Products that make a scientific claim based on a falsified, misrepresented, or completely fabricated study.
  • Products that claim to help consumers lose weight, get rid of acne, reverse signs of aging, increase testosterone levels, sleep better, and so on.
  • Foods that claim to be “all-natural” or “100% organic” even though they are not.
  • “Sales” where the original retail price was marked-up to create the appearance of a sale price.
  • Product advertisements that make very specific claims, such as an exact percentage of an ingredient.
