The Stay Slim Weight Loss Centers located throughout New York claimed to sell healthy low fat, low carb, low-calorie food. The only thing they were selling was lies. Stay Slim Centers have been exposed for using ‘phony’ low calorie, carb and fat claims on its diet food.
The State Department of Agriculture and Markets analyzed 28 samples of Stay Slim food and found all 28 were “misbranded”. Every claim on Stay Slim’s nutritional labels for the tested foods was found to be false and greatly exaggerated. Agriculture officials credited WCBS’s ‘Shame on You’ who first broke the story and brought the fraud to the attention of the State Department of Agriculture.
“There is a real health concern because of the extreme inaccuracies on the labels,” said Jessica Chittenden, a spokesperson for the Department of Agriculture and Markets. To view the states complete test results go to www.agmkt.state.ny.us and click on Food Safety Alerts.
Stay Slim engaged in deceptive business practices and must be held accountable. They wrongfully induced Customers, many of whom were desperate to lose weight, to purchase food based on promises of healthy lifestyles and thin waistlines. In reality, Stay Slim fattened their wallets through deception without any care or regard for the health and safety of their customers.
