FDA: Avon ANEW marketing makes false claims
October 17, 2012 (WLS) -- The government puts Avon on notice about some of its skin care claims.
The Food and Drug Administration sent a warning letter to Avon about its marketing of products- mostly involving its ANEW skin care brand.
The FDA says the warning is based on claims that its anti-wrinkle products can stimulate cells or reactivate the skin's repair progress. The FDA says those claims falsely make the products sound like drugs.
