FTC Sends Refund Checks Totaling Almost $175,000 to Consumers Who Bought Deceptively Marketed Supplements to Treat Childhood Speech Disorders

The Federal Trade Commission is mailing refund checks to consumers who lost money buying dietary supplements, "Speak and Speak Smooth," deceptively marketed as proven effective at treating childhood speech disorders, including those associated with autism. The refunds are from money collected through a settlement, under which the NourishLife, LLC defendants agreed to stop making allegedly deceptive claims that their products develop and maintain normal, healthy speech and language capabilities in children.
