NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – A bodybuilding supplement manufacturer based in New Jersey is alleged to have misrepresented the nature and benefits of its glutamine products.
David Kim filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 10 in the U.S District Court for the District of New Jersey against Nutrabio Labs Inc. alleging breach of warranty and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in November 2017, he purchased one of the defendant's glutamine products, which are advertised as being beneficial to support muscle growth and speed muscle recovery. The plaintiff alleges that the products' claims are false and that they provide no added benefits to consumers.
The plaintiff holds Nutrabio Labs Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly has introduced misbranded products into interstate commerce which is prohibited under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks for economic, compensatory and actual damages; attorneys' fees; costs of this action; prejudgment and post-judgment interests; and for such other and further relief this court deems just and appropriate.
He is represented by Michael Weinkowitz, Charles E. Schaffer of Levin Sedran & Berman LLP in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Nick Suciu III of Barbat, Mansour & Suciu PLLC in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan; Charles J. LaDuca and Beatrice Yakubu of Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca LLP in Washington, D.C.; and Erica C. Mirabella of Mirabella Law LLC in Boston, Massachusetts.
