Dannon Yogurt sued

By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of The Academy

Chalk this up to “if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is”.  Dannon yogurt has agreed to pay a settlement due to false advertising claims.  The company was touting it’s Activia Yogurt and DanActive Drink as “a cure for colds and flu and even constipation”.  The Federal Trade Commission said that Dannon’s health claims were deceptive because they did not have any scientific proof.  The yogurt maker was ordered to pay $21 million to 39 states.
