Herbalife Sued for Negligence and Fraud by Victim
Date:6/10/2008

OAKLAND, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Offices of Christopher Grell have filed a lawsuit against Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE: HLF) in the Superior Court of the State of California (case BC392373, dept. 48) today on behalf of a 29-year-old woman who acquired acute liver problems after taking Herbalife products.

The lawsuit, which also names several companies that manufacture Herbalife products and ingredients, alleges that Phillis Chen, a resident of the State of California, suffered acute liver problems that required hospitalization as a result of using a combination of Herbalife products. Ms. Chen is suing Herbalife for Breach of Express Warranty, Breach of Implied Warranty, Strict Liability, Negligence and Fraud.

"Ms. Chen began taking Herbalife products in October 2007, and within a few months her health had deteriorated significantly," said Ms. Chen's attorney, Christopher Grell. "She could not hold food down, was nauseous and constantly fatigued. She stopped taking the products and those problems went away, but when she started again the problems returned worse. She had to go to the emergency room after she noticed blood in her urine, and her doctors opined that the most likely cause of her liver problems were the Herbalife products and instructed her to stop taking them immediately."

Herbalife products have been called into question recently by studies appearing in The Journal of Hepatology, including "Herbal Does Not Mean Innocuous: 10 cases of Severe Hepatoxicity from Dietary Supplements from Herbalife" Journal of Hepatology 47 (2007 521-526) and "Association Between Consumption of Herbalife Nutritional Supplements and Acute Hepatotocity" Journal of Hepatology 2007 Oct 47(4) 514-520). These studies implicate
