NEWARK, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GOLO, LLC today announced that it filed a lawsuit against ZoCo Productions, LLC, HARPO Productions, Inc., Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Keri Glassman for misleading consumers about GOLO on the doctoroz.com website and on the Dr. Oz TV show.
The Complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (Civil Action No. 17-3407) and includes claims for Unfair Competition, False Advertising and Trade Libel.
“As a company, our mission is to provide healthy lifestyle solutions to consumers and when false and fake reviews are given, we feel we need to protect consumers, as well as our brand,” said Chris Lundin, CEO of GOLO. “While we cannot change the untrue statements that aired on the show, we are committed to doing what is right to help ensure the well-being of consumers.”
On July 12, 2017, the Dr. Oz TV show aired a segment where Keri Glassman “reviewed” “internet diets,” including GOLO. During the segment, false and misleading information was given about GOLO.
The information given is not only false and misleading to consumers, it is not without bias since Dr. Mehmet Oz and his website promote his own weight loss program which was not disclosed during the segment or on the website.
GOLO is an affordable 3-tier weight management program that helps consumers achieve healthy, sustainable weight loss and help reverse weight related health conditions. GOLO’s team of researchers, doctors and pharmacists found that managing glucose and insulin by not restricting calories or depriving the body of important fats and carbohydrates was a more effective weight loss solution. The program known as the GOLO Rescue Plan includes a realistic and sustainable eating plan called The Metabolic Fuel Matrix and a plant and mineral based supplement called Release which was formulated to address glucose and insulin optimization to support a healthy metabolism. Other tools are included to address diet propaganda, stress and emotional eating and guidance to consumers on the transition to a healthy lifestyle. The company does not auto-ship or auto bill, provides a 60-day unconditional money back guarantee, and free one-on-one support, as well as free access to myGOLO.com for additional health and wellness information.
