Most of the concern has come from the Hispanic community, including local, state and federal lawmakers as well as consumer groups concerned that Herbalife is targeting minorities.
“I’m mad,” said LULAC’s National Executive Director Brent Wilkes. “I’ve seen Latinos ripped off by banks and others, but this scheme really takes the cake.”
After talking with Herbalife “and not getting the answers I wanted to hear, I concluded they are defrauding upwards of 300,000 Latinos a year,” he said.
Another consumer activist planning to attend the meeting said, “We think the problem is getting worse, and we think that the FTC is really important.”
Several sources told The Post that they believe the FTC is reluctant to launch an investigation of Herbalife because of the company’s financial resources and legal firepower.
Some FTC officials have even suggested to consumer activists that a plaintiff lawsuit against Herbalife would be a preferable way to address their concerns, according to sources.
Funny, most Latinos have never even heard of LULAC. Using Ackman's logic, that means they don't exist. Latinos love HLF. THAT is the reason there are so many doing the business.
