Documents relevant to this claim


In October 2009, Harris Steinman lodged a complaint against a Solal Health Shake advertisement with ASASA. ASASA responded on 2 December 2009 with feedback from Solal stating that the advert was placed in error and will not reappear. ASASA therefore did not investigate further. Nevertheless, the Solal website still contains numerous claims which amount to their supplements improving nutrition.
