You may have seen açaí berry products recently advertised with Oprah Winfrey and Dr.  Oz’s name endorsing it and giving the dietary supplement their fool proof guarantee.   Quotes from her show of Dr. Mehmet Oz discussing the product were erroneously fabricated and tied to the products’ advertising and marketing in order to boost sales and make them trustworthy brands.

Dr. Oz explained on todays ABC “Good Morning America:”

“Many Americans have seen images of me, and Oprah and others supporting, it would appear, products that actually don’t work in the ways that are described. And more importantly, when consumers trusting us try to buy these products over the Web, what they end up getting are fake products, pills that don’t really have what’s promised in them. They’re often duped into paying more than they should. If my picture is next to a product, endorsing it and supporting your purchase of it, I did not give them permission.”

40 companies have been sued as a result by the daytime duo.  According to Vitals.com, Dr. Mehmet Oz is a New York board certified Thoracic Surgeon and speaks 8 languages.  He’s favored by his patients and has been America’s Top Doctor for the past decade.

Oprah Winfrey’s Web site stated:

“Consumers should be aware that neither Oprah Winfrey nor Dr. Oz are associated with nor do they endorse any açaí berry product, company or online solicitation of such products, including MonaVie juice products. Any companies that misrepresent their affiliation are making false claims.”
