On Wednesday, the Federal Trade Commission announced it had filed a lawsuit against a former advertising agency for misleading consumers on sexual health and safety issues.
The FTC’s complaint seeks to recover lost advertising revenue from the agency.
According to the FTC, the company, Redfin, falsely marketed sexual health information to consumers as the company’s product line.
According to the complaint, Redfins sexual health product line featured a warning that it “can cause a number of unwanted side effects.”
In an online video, RedFin CEO Andrew Wiedenmaier said the company didn’t have the data to back up the claims.
“I’m a man.
I have sex, I’m an adult,” he said in the video.
“I’m not going to lie, we are very proud of what we do.”
Redfin’s sexual health claims were pulled from its websites and social media platforms following the FTC’s investigation, but the company is still fighting the lawsuit.
The FTC’s lawsuit is the latest in a string of lawsuits against companies accused of making false claims about sexual health.
The company is also accused of promoting “pre-sex” products that were not actually marketed to women, and misleading consumers about HIV testing and sexual health services.
