In February 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against The Nature’s Bounty Co. for allegedly misleadingly marketing Nature’s Bounty and Solgar biotin supplements as supporting healthy hair, skin, and nails when, according to plaintiffs, the supplements do not provide such benefits. Plaintiffs also claim that the company markets biotin supplements as providing energy when, according to the complaint, there is no evidence that biotin increases energy in humans. (Mazzo et al v. The Nature’s Bounty Co. et al
, Case No. 18-cv-1255, E. D. NY.)
