Case Name: Federal Trade Commission v. Fitness Brands, Inc., et al., Case No. 12-23065-CIV-ALTONAGA
Summary:

The Ab Circle Pro is a piece of abdominal exercise equipment sold both through infomercials and retail stores. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleged that the companies associated with the Ab Circle Pro make misleading claims about the product’s value for fat loss and as a more effective alternative to sit-ups. The defendant’s did not agree with this allegation, but settled the case before it was heard by the court.

Occasionally we come across a case that just shocks us to the core (pardon the pun). What is the world coming to if you can’t rely on the veracity of claims made on infomercials? Good thing the FTC is stop the lawlessness. Can’t a fat American rely on the makers of the Ab Circle Pro to give them 6-pack abs for the four low installments of $29.95. Well, I will be taking my money to the fine people at the Brazilian Butt Lift program.

Settlement Pool: $15,000,000 – $25,000,000 (depending on the number of claims)
