A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Core Formulation alleging that its protein supplements – including those sold under the brand names Core Formulations/CF, Core 8, IsoCore, APEX, Biohealth Precisions ISO, and Rogue Nutrition – Rogue Whey – do not contain the represented amount of protein. Specifically, the complaint, which was originally filed in February 2016 and amended in July 2016, alleges that test results show that the protein levels in the supplements are lower than the label claims.
