CVS Enhanced Absorption Formula CoQ-10 Dietary Supplements
March 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against CVS Pharmacy and Lang Pharma Nutrition for allegedly falsely advertising CVS Enhanced Absorption Formula CoQ-10 dietary supplements as having enhanced absorption and supporting heart health when, according to the complaint, the supplements do not provide the advertised benefits due to their failure to timely rupture and insufficient dissolution. The complaint also claims that CVS misleadingly compares its CoQ-10 supplements to Qunol Ultra CoQ10 when, according to the complaint, the Qunol supplements are not comparable to the CVS supplements because lab testing shows that the Qunol supplements do not exhibit the rupture and dissolution issues. (Alvandi et al v. CVS Pharmacy, Inc. and Lang Pharma Nutrition, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-1503, C. D. CA.)
