Tender’s website and promotional materials also made the claim. According to the FTC complaint, respondent represented that Fresh Bath Wipes and Fresh Bath Travel Wipes and their packages will completely break down and return to nature, i.e., decompose into elements found in nature, within a reasonably short period of time after customary disposal. The complaint alleges respondent’s biodegradable claim is false because a substantial majority of total household waste is disposed of either in landfills, incinerators, or recycling facilities and these customary disposal methods do not present conditions that would allow for the wipes and their packaging to completely break down and return to nature, i.e., decompose into elements found in nature, within a reasonably short period of time. The complaint further alleges that respondent failed to have substantiation for the biodegradable claim. The proposed consent order contains provisions designed to prevent respondent from engaging in similar acts and practices in the future. Part I.A of the proposed order prohibits respondent from making a representation that certain of its products are degradable unless the representation is true, not misleading, and substantiated by competent and reliable scientific evidence. Part I.B prohibits respondent from making any other environmental benefit claim about such products, unless at the time the representation is made, it is truthful and not misleading, and substantiated by competent and reliable evidence, which when appropriate must be competent and reliable scientific evidence. Part II of the proposed order requires respondent to specify whether its degradability claim applies to the product, package, or components of either. Parts III through VI require respondent to keep copies of relevant advertisements and materials substantiating claims made in the advertisements; to provide copies of the order to certain of their personnel; to notify the Commission of changes in corporate structure that might affect compliance obligations under the order; and to file compliance reports with the Commission and respond to other requests from FTC staff. Part VII provides that the order will terminate after twenty (20) years under certain circumstances. The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:50 Jun 15, 2009 Jkt 217001 the agreement and proposed order or to modify in any way their terms.
