Fritz aquas products were not a huge hit.
According to the New York Times, they had a market share of only 3% of the Fuzzy Fuzzies line, which was a disappointing result considering that Fuzzie was sold in stores across the world.
But it wasn’t just Fuzzys that didn’t sell as well.
The company was accused of using fake names and logos to promote its products.
And that was a problem for the brand, as they needed to get new names and brands and the Feds stepped in.
In 2008, the FDA issued a ruling that said Fuzzia products were “unlikely to pose a health threat” and the brand was banned from selling products.
Fritz aquals was found to have created fake labels, trademarks and product names, according to the FDA.
It’s unclear whether that meant Fuzzias products weren’t sold.
In response, Fuzzey pulled its Fuzzi lines, but Fuzzio still sells them under the brand name.
