In December 2015, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against GNC for allegedly deceptively packaging GNC Lean Shake products — including Total Lean, Total Lean Advanced, and Total Lean Control and Reduce — in large, opaque containers with approximately 30% empty space in order to make consumers believe they are buying more than they actually are. (Gioia et al v. GNC Holdings, Inc.
, Case No. 15-cv-2871, S. D. CA.)
