The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) recently announced that it reached a settlement in its first ever “organic” marketing case against Moonlight Slumber, LLC (“Moonlight”).

The FTC communicated its displeasure with Moonlight’s organic marketing practices wherein it alleged in the underlying Complaint that Moonlight had violated Section 5(a) of the FTC Act based on claims that Moonlight allegedly misrepresented and/or could not support.
What did the FTC allege violated the law?
