Nature’s Bounty Biotin Supplements

In March 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against NBTY, Inc. and Nature’s Bounty, Inc. for allegedly deceptively marketing biotin supplements as “Support[ing[ Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails” when, in reality, the biotin supplements do not provide any benefits. According to the complaint, the supplements are “unneeded” and “superfluous” because the general population gets enough biotin (the sole active ingredient in the supplements) in their daily diets. (Alvarez et al v. NBTY, Inc. and Nature’s Bounty, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-567, S. D. CA.)
