Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein Spiked with Non-Protein Ingredients, Alleges Class Action Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP and Co-Counsel
Date:8/26/2014

Port Washington, New York (PRWEB) August 26, 2014

Parker Waichman LLP, Seeger Weiss LLP and Barbat, Mansour & Suciu PLLC have filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers who purchased the protein supplement product, Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein. The lawsuit was filed on August 25, 2014 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Case No. 1:14-cv-05030). United States Nutrition; Inc., Healthwatchers, Inc.; and parent company, NBTY, Inc. have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein does not have as much protein as claimed on the label because the Defendants have allegedly engaged in “protein-spiking,” a practice that is also known as “amino-spiking” or “nitrogen-spiking.” This is a process by which manufacturers add cheaper, free form amino acids and non-protein ingredients to boost a protein product’s nitrogen content while reducing protein manufacturing costs. Since a common protein content test relies on nitrogen as a measure of protein, this alleged act deceives customers into believing they are receiving more whey protein than is actually contained in the product.

According to Parker Waichman LLP, a number of protein supplement customers are being cheated out of a product they purchased. “Manufacturers that engage in protein-spiking deceive customers and mislead them into believing they are receiving a product with more protein than it actually contains,” said Gary Falkowitz, Managing Attorney at the firm. “By filing this class action lawsuit on behalf of Body Fortress consumers, our firm intends to hold manufacturers responsible for their false claims.”

On April 1, 2014, the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) rebuked the act of amino-spiki
