We are investigating allegations that GNC-branded dietary supplements violate federal labeling regulations. The proprietary brand dietary supplements include, but are not limited to, GNC Men’s Prostate Formula Dietary Supplement (“Prostate Health”), GNC Diabetic Support Dietary Supplement (“Diabetic Support”), GNC Preventive Nutrition Healthy Blood Pressure Formula Supplement, GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Active Supplement, and GNC Mega Men Healthy Testosterone (“Mega Men Performance”).
Consumers allege that GNC’s supplements are marketed and advertised as being able to treat or prevent specific diseases. However, such claims are allegedly deceptive and illegal, because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not evaluated the legitimacy of the claims and, as such, the supplements should contain a label disclosing that the FDA has not conducted such reviews. Moreover, GNC’s supplements are technically qualified as “drugs” because of the health-related claims, but the supplements have not received pre-market approval from the FDA, possibly making them not only misbranded but unapproved drugs.
If you or anyone you know purchased any of the above named GNC supplements, please contact Finkelstein Thompson LLP. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us toll-free at 1-844-280-5009.
