February – March 2015: All of the named plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their claims. (Click here and here for the dismissal orders). The reasons for the dismissal have not been disclosed.

August 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against the manufacturers of the Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein for allegedly misleadingly marketing the dietary supplement. According to the complaint, the companies use a practice known as “protein-spiking” (i.e., adding cheaper amino acids and non-protein ingredients to supplements as a way to increase the nitrogen content of protein powder) and, as a result of this practice, the supplement contains approximately 30% less whey protein than the companies represent on the product labels. (Mencer et al v. NBTY, Inc., United States Nutrition, Inc., and Healthwatchers, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-05030, E. D. NY.).
