GVH fines HYD for false advertising

Competition

Hungary's Competition Office (GVH) fined HYD HUF 30 mln after making unsubstantiated health claims about its Preventa products in advertisements, GVH reported today.

According to GVH, HYD suggested the depleted-deuterium products had health benefits, although the national health institute GYEMSZI-OGYI did not certify them. GVH considered HYD's targeting of consumers with health problems an aggravating factor.
