WASHINGTON (POOL/CNN) - Mehmet Oz, the host of the Dr. Oz show, was on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

He is clearing his name after a company claimed he endorsed their pure green coffee diet plan.

He says he did not endorse the product.

It's part of a Senate committee hearing on phony and false promises from weight loss products.

A suit against Pure Green Coffee alleges the company capitalized on the green coffee bean diet fad with bogus weight-loss claims and fake news sites to market its supplement.

The company allegedly began selling its products weeks after green coffee was promoted on the Dr. Oz show.
