Court Upholds Seasilver 120M Fine

Natural Products Industry Insider | 4/22/2008

SAN FRANCISCO—The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld a prior district court ruling requiring the marketers of the Seasilver dietary supplement to pay almost $120 million for failing to comply with an earlier order to pay $3 million in consumer redress.

This latest decision requires the defendants—Jason and Bela Berkes, Seasilver USA Inc. and Americaloe Inc.—to pay almost $120 million under a 2004 agreement with FTC, which barred them from making false or misleading claims and included a $120 million judgment that would be suspended if they paid $3 million within a specified time. The defendants did not meet the required payment terms, and a June 2006 district court granted FTC's request to enforce the stipulated avalanche judgment. However, the defendants appealed this 2006 decision.

Seasilver Appeals $120 Million FTC Payment

Seasilver(r) and related parties are appealing a $120 million "avalanche" payment demanded by FTC in connection with a 2003 settlement of advertising and labeling issues {U.S. District Court, District of Nevada CV-S-03-0676-RLH-(LRL)}. Seasilver is one of the few fully-compliant producers of nutritional supplements in a field where many of its competitors continue to routinely make claims that would result in closure of their operations if the FTC chose to enforce the applicable regulations. While appealing the $120 million avalanche payment, Seasilver continues to service customers and fulfill orders, and continues to raise funds that would eventually pay off the original settlement.

Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2006 -- Seasilver(r) and related parties are appealing a $120 million "avalanche" payment demanded by FTC in connection with a 2003 settlement of advertising and labeling issues {U.S. District Court, District of Nevada CV-S-03-0676-RLH-(LRL)}. Since the 2003 intervention by FTC and its settlement with Seasilver USA, Seasilver(r) has produced its natural plant-based liquid nutritional product in compliance with all applicable regulations governing advertising and labeling, as well as all other regulations governing nutritional supplements and food-related products.

Seasilver Marketers Fined Almost 120 Million by FTC

NPI Center | 7/24/2006

Marketers of Seasilver Ordered to Pay Almost $120 Million 2006-07-24 - Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

Defendants Failed to Pay Consumer Redress

The marketers of Seasilver, an alleged phony cure-all, have been ordered to pay almost $120 million for failing to comply with an earlier order requiring them to pay $3 million in consumer redress.

In ads for Seasilver, the promoters claimed the product, a liquid dietary supplement containing aloe vera, phyto-silver sea vegetables, herbs, cranberry concentrate, and other ingredients, was clinically proven to treat or cure 650 diseases, including cancer and AIDS, and caused rapid, substantial, and permanent weight loss without dieting. The FTC alleged that the claims were false and unsubstantiated.

In March 2004, the defendants agreed to settle the FTC’s charges. The settlement, filed in federal court, barred the defendants from making false or misleading claims in the future. It also required the defendants to pay $3 million in consumer redress and included a suspended judgment of $120 million, which would become due if the defendants misrepresented their financial status, or did not make the payments as they agreed.

To date, Seasilver, USA, Inc. and Americaloe, Inc., and their owners, Bela Berkes and Jason Berkes, have paid less than $1 million of the consumer redress they agreed to pay. Under the Court’s order, entered on June 20, 2006, the Seasilver marketers are now jointly and severally liable to pay the full amount of $119,237,000, plus interest. The FTC has secured liens on the defendants’ assets, including a nursery, an aloe farm, and equipment. The two largest distributors of Seasilver, who were named in the FTC’s complaint and settled the charges, have made their separate court-ordered payments of $1 million and $500,000.
