Trader Joe’s Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D

April 2013: This action was voluntarily dismissed with prejudice. The reasons have not been disclosed.

March 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Trader Joe’s regarding its Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D supplement.  According to the complaint, the product labeling and advertising states that one dose of the supplement contains 400 International Units (IU) of Vitamin D-3 when, in actuality, it contains almost 700 IUs.  The plaintiffs bringing the lawsuit claim this amount of vitamin D-3 is grossly excessive, entirely undisclosed, inconsistent with product labeling, and potentially harmful to consumers.  (Hoffman v. Trader Joe’s Co., Case No. 13-cv-01732, D. N.J.)
