ALBANY, N.Y.—Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has reached a settlement with a chain of tanning salons.
The settlement has brought upon the agreement that the salons will stop making claims about the health benefits of tanning.
The agreement is with HT Franchising Management LLC, doing business as Hollywood tans.
Authorities say it prohibits New York franchises from offering unlimited tanning packages, targeting high school students, or making therapeutic claims such as "it can help your body create Vitamin D to prevent cancer."
Schneiderman, citing concerns over the cancer risk of indoor tanning, started an investigation last year into misleading advertising.
