The Packaging of MuscleTech and Six Star Protein Products
October 2015: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Iovate Health Sciences U.S.A. Inc. for allegedly deceptively packaging MuscleTech and Six Star Protein products, including Nitro-Tech, Micellar Whey, 100% Casein, Six Star, and Platinum 100% Iso-Whey and Whey products. According to the complaint, the containers for these products are opaque and contain more than 40% empty space. (Kline et al v. Iovate Health Sciences U.S.A. Inc., Case No. 15-cv-2387, S. D. CA.)
