January 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Quincy Bioscience, LLC for allegedly misleadingly marketing Prevagen, a brain health supplement. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the supplement is marketed as being “clinically tested” to “improve memory within 90 days” and support “healthy brain function, sharper mind, and clearer thinking” without scientific evidence to support such claims. (Racies et al v. Quincy Bioscience, LLC, Case No. 15-cv-00292, N. D. CA.).
