Bayer’s “One-A-Day WeightSmart” Dietary Supplements

In April 2015, a federal judge granted final approval of a $500,000 settlement of a false advertising class-action lawsuit against Bayer. The complaint, which was originally filed in 2008, alleged that Bayer misleadingly marketed its “One-A-Day WeightSmart” dietary supplements as having the ability to, among other things, increase metabolism, prevent weight gain, and help promote weight maintenance when, in reality, such claims are not true. According to the settlement terms, class members with proof of purchase may receive a full refund (for a maximum refund of $250) and class members without proof of purchase may receive a $15 refund. The marketing for “One-A-Day WeightSmart” will remain the same as the company has not agreed to make any changes as a result of this lawsuit. (Carrera et al v. Bayer Corporation and Bayer HealthCare, LLC, Case No. 08-cv-04716, D. NJ.)
