Law360 (May 6, 2019, 3:05 PM EDT) -- GNC is misleading customers into thinking its line of dietary supplements has been approved by the FDA by failing to include prominent disclaimers on the labels, which makes the supplements illegal drugs, according to a proposed class action filed in California federal court.
Because GNC hasn't had its products pre-approved for sale by the FDA, the supplements should have a prominent disclaimer warning buyers that the products are "not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease." But the disclaimers are either hidden on the back of supplement labels or omitted entirely, according to the suit filed Friday.
