Class action lawsuits are being filed against protein supplement makers for false and misleading advertising. A class action lawsuit was recenlty filed againt Body Fortress alleging that the product contains much less protein than advertised to consumers. The matter is pending in a federal court.
The lawsuit alleges that Body Fortress advertises that it contains 30 grams of protein per serving, but in fact has substantially less protein. According the lawsuit, the supplement maker engages in "protein spiking" by adding other substances to the product so that it tests for a higher amount of protein. Independent testing has reportedly shown the supplement contains only 21.5 grams of whey protein after the protein-spiking agents are removed. The protein content of a supplement product is indirectly determined by testing the nitrogen content of the product.
If you have purchased and consumed a protein powder in the recent past, you may be eligible to file a protein powder spiking lawsuit. You may have been overpaying for your protein supplement based upon this false and deceptive advertising. As a member of a class action lawsuit, you would be entitled to compensation.
Protein powders are a staple in the diet and workout regimen for both professional and amateur athletes. Weightlifters and exercise enthusiasts take extraordinary steps to ensure that everything they put in their body is healthy and can help them reach their full potential. Unfortunately, it now appears that the sellers of these products may be cheating them.
There are a number of widely used protein supplement brands and products sold through retail stores and online, including:
• Pro Supps PS Whey
• Allmax Nutrition ISO flex
• Inner Armour Nitro-Peak
• 4 Dimension Nutrition Whey Phase
• CVS Protein
• Mutant Whey
• Beast Sports 100% Beast Whey
• New Whey Nutrition Multi Pro Whey
• Infinite Labs 100% Whey Protein
• Body fortress super advanced
• Arnold series iron whey
• Arnold series iron mass
Of those listed above, several have been determined by testing to include other substances to inflate the actual amount of protein in the supplement. These include Body Fortress Super Advanced, Arnold Series Iron Whey, and Arnold Series Iron Mass. Don’t be surprised if some of these other products are tested and show similar results. The competitive nature of this market may cause a protein seller to spike the product to save money and increase the profitability of the supplement.
