Class Action

Giant Sports Delicious Protein

October 2015: The named plaintiff voluntarily dismissed this action after failing to meet certain litigation deadlines.

October 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Giant Sports Products, LLC for allegedly misrepresenting the amount of protein in Giant Sports Delicious Protein. According to the complaint, the company uses a practice called “protein-spiking” (i.e., adding less expensive non-protein ingredients, such as amino acids, to increase the nitrogen content, which then makes the product seem like it has more protein than it actually has) and, as a result, the product has 60% less whey protein than the company represents. (Rodriguez et al v. Giant Sports Products, LLC, Case No. 14-cv-8378, C. D. CA.).
