Kathie Lee Gifford In a New Balance of Nature Commercial, FDA Shutdowns and Warnings Are Irrelevant to Her


Yes, Kathie Lee Gifford is back plugging Balance of Nature.

(How much money does she need?)

Gifford doesn’t seem to care that the FDA has issued warnings about the shady vitamin supplement company, shut them down temporarily, and tried to warn the public that the company’s idiotic claims of fruits and vegetables stuffed into a capsule cures nothing.

Just so we’re all on the same page, Kathie Lee:

In 2020, the FDA issued a very stern warning about Balance of Nature.

This year in August, the State of California fined the company $1.1 million for fraudulent health claims.

In November, the FDA halted all sales again. Balance of Nature complied shortly thereafter, but if you’re not getting the message at this point, I’d say it’s your fault if I were a juror. The public has been warned.

I actually did think Gifford was savvier than this. She was criticized last year for doing one of these. Since then Balance of Nature has been outed for all the above reasons. She could be doing commercials for lots of things. But this outfit? She couldn’t stump for a used car dealer in Nashville?

Let’s hope KLG isn’t actually ingesting this stuff. Even prayer won’t help her then!
