The Sunday Riley FTC Settlement, False Advertising, and Ben & Jerry’s

January 15, 2020

The Sunday Riley FTC settlement gives us a lot of insight to the direction the FTC is taking their action towards false advertising claims, and some amazing tea. I am not going to lie, I love it when the FTC isn’t afraid to just lay someone out. That said the Sunday Riley FTC settlement doesn’t require Sunday Riley to admit fault, so everything stated is alleged. However, alleged with quite a bit of actual quotes, and evidence, but still fault has not been admitted by Sunday Riley.
