A false advertising class-action lawsuit against CVS survived
a motion to dismiss filed by CVS in March 2016. The complaint
, which was originally filed in November 2014 and amended in July 2015, alleges that CVS misrepresents the nature and quality of its dietary supplement CVS Whey Protein Powder. Among other things, plaintiffs claim that the product labels misleadingly represent the protein content, including the percent of daily value and sources of protein content. (Gubala et al v. CVS Health Corp.
, Case No. 14-cv-9039, N. D. IL.)
