Sensa “Tastants” – the weight loss sprinkles you shake liberally over your food to lose weight – do not work, or at least if they do, no scientific evidence has been brought forward to support the “sprinkle, eat, and lose weight” claims Sensa has been making to its customers and its prospective customers.
That’s according to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
Earlier this year, Sensa was fined US$26.5 million because – the FTC charges, “they deceived consumers with unfounded weight-loss claims and misleading endorsements.”
The funds will be made available as refunds to customers who have purchased Sensa.
If you used the product, were unsatisfied or felt you were scammed and you’d like to obtain a refund, or some portion of the settlement funds, you may be able to recoup some of your investment.
Please contact the Federal Trade Commission for further details (questions and answers about refunds are here!).
This US$26.5 million fine follows on the heels of a US$6 million class action suit which was filed in 2012. The dealine for filing a claim, unfortunately, has passed.
