Washington, DC - The Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint in October 2014 alleging that Gerber Products Company, also doing business as Nestlé Nutrition, deceptively advertised that feeding Good Start Gentle formula to infants with a family history of allergies prevents or reduces the risk that they will develop allergies, and misrepresented that its Good Start Gentle formula qualified for or received approval for a health claim from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Gerber and the FTC have agreed to settle the dispute under terms set out in the stipulated order announced Monday.

The Commission vote approving the proposed stipulated order was 5-0. The United States District Court, District of New Jersey, approved the stipulated order on July 15, 2019.
