PORTLAND, Ore. (Legal Newsline) – An Oregon resident alleges Rite Aid brand nutritional supplements have inaccurate labels.
Kaley Diann Silva filed a complaint on Feb. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, Portland Division against Rite Aid Corp. alleging fraud, unjust enrichment and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant's Rite Aid brand vitamins, minerals, supplements, herbs, sports nutrition and other wellness products have inaccurate labels. The plaintiff alleges the nutrition supplement labels contain "inaccurate or misleading representations and omissions related to the total amount of milligrams of nutritional supplement included in the entire container."
The plaintiff holds Rite Aid Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly misrepresented the quantity and characteristics of the contents of each of the nutritional products, creating a substantial likelihood that a reasonable consumer will be misled into believing they were receiving significantly more net quantity than what is actually provided in the product.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks temporary and permanent injunction; award of monetary, exemplary and punitive damages; attorney fees and costs incurred. She is represented by Rick Kingbeil of Rick Klingbeil PC in Portland, Oregon.
