In March 2017, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against MusclePharm Corp. for allegedly falsely advertising the dietary supplement MusclePharm Glutamine. According to the complaint, the company markets the supplement as providing various health benefits – such as “Enhanc[ing] Muscle Growth & Recovery,” providing “Faster Recovery,” “Aid[ing] in Muscle Growth,” and “Minimiz[ing] muscle catabolism (breakdown)” – when glutamine supplementation does not provide such benefits. (Yeldo et al v. MusclePharm Corp.
, Case No. 17-cv-11011, E. D. MI.)
