The Packaging of Nature’s Bounty Supplements

November 2015: This action was dismissed with prejudice because the parties reached a settlement. The terms of the settlement agreement are confidential.

June 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Nature’s Bounty for allegedly misleadingly using slack-filled packaging for Nature’s Bounty nutritional supplements – including Dual Spectrum Cranberry with Hibiscus, Red Krill Oil, and Q Sorb™ Co Q-10 Plus – in order to make consumers believe they are buying more product than they actually are. According to the plaintiffs, the size of the bottles makes consumers believe that the actual volume of the tablets or softgels inside the bottles is larger than it actually is. (Rodriguez et al v. Nature’s Bounty, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-4547, S. D. NY.)

When a complaint is dismissed with prejudice, it cannot be refiled.
