FTC Sues Supplement Company Sunrise Over Misleading Claims

Sunrise Nutraceuticals LLC was sued by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission for allegedly misleading consumers that its dietary supplement Elimidrol can help treat people suffering from withdrawal from opiates, including heroin.

The action relates to separate actions against Health Nutrition Products and NPB Advertising in 2014, the FTC said in a statement. The agency sent warning letters to 20 companies that advertise and sell dietary supplements online for weight loss.
