Water Cure: Florida Company Sued over False Marketing Claims Relating to Health Benefits of Hydrogen-Enriched Water

  • Florida AG Ashley Moody sued drinking-water system marketer Wellness Program Services, LLC d/b/a Trusii and related entities and individuals (collectively “Trusii”) over allegations that it used false and misleading health benefits claims and finance offers to market its systems in violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act and the Consumer Review Fairness Act.
  • The complaint alleges that Trusii falsely claimed that its molecular hydrogen water systems, for which it charged thousands of dollars, could provide health benefits for over 170 medical conditions, including cancer, COVID-19, depression, and diabetes. Trusii also allegedly did not deliver many machines for months after customers began paying monthly installments for them, and often delivered inoperable or broken machines, and it did not honor its money-back and repair or replacement guarantees. In addition, Trusii allegedly offered consumers the option of enrolling in a case-study program in which they would be compensated on a regular basis for positive reviews, while in reality such compensation was sporadically paid or never paid at all.
  • The complaint seeks injunctive relief, restitution, disgorgement, civil money penalties, and attorneys’ fees and costs, among other things.
