In May 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against GNC for allegedly misleadingly marketing that its dietary supplements – including Men’s Prostate Formula, Diabetic Support, Preventive Nutrition Healthy Blood Pressure Formula, Women’s Ultra Mega Active Supplement, and Mega Men Healthy Testosterone – prevent, cure, and treat various diseases and health conditions without proper FDA approval to make such claims. Plaintiffs also claim that the company violates federal law by failing to adequately present a disclaimer that the FDA has not evaluated the marketing claims and the product is not intended to treat any disease. (Arora et al v. GNC Holdings Inc.
, Case No. 19-cv-2414, N. D. CA.)
