Trader Joe’s Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D
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.)
When a complaint is dismissed with prejudice, it cannot be refiled.
