In November 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Woodbolt Nutrition for allegedly deceptively using slack-fill
ed packaging for Cellucor C4 Pre-Workout powders. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the 30-serving container has 66.6% empty space and the 60-serving container has approximately 45% empty space. (Kinder et al v. Woodbolt Distribution, LLC
, Case No. 18-cv-2713, S. D. CA.)
