FTC Releases 2016 Annual Highlights Report

Your BBB® has learned that the Federal trade Commission has released the 2016 Annual Highlights which state the FTC’s ongoing effort to protect consumers and promote healthy competition in the marketplace throughout the entire last year. “2016 was a historic year for the FTC. We obtained almost $12 billion in redress for consumers, and took action in more than a dozen merger cases to preserve competition,” says Acting Chairman Ohlhausen.

Through their Enforcement Highlights, the FTC is trying to address key legal actions against many sectors, such as healthcare, IT and other consumer products and services. You can read the entire report here or check this Stats and Data 2016 Infographic for more information.

The Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition and protect and educate consumers. You can learn more about consumer topics and file a consumer complaint online or by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357).
