Responding to a request by nine members of Congress who requested the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission investigate the company, SmileDirectClub said the effort reflects anti-competitive publicity tactics. "NBC Stands by Story After SmileDirectClub Rebuke," at 9:55 a.m. ET on Feb. 14, 2020, and "SmileDirectClub Deems NBC News Coverage a 'Misrepresentation,'" at 9:05 a.m. ET on Feb. 14, 2020, incorrectly referred to the agency as the Federal Drug Administration based on the company's press release.
