In March 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against PhD Fitness for allegedly misleadingly marketing the characteristics and benefits of sports supplements. According to the complaint, the company misleadingly markets Pre-JYM and Post-JYM supplements as being scientifically supported and properly dosed to provide certain benefits – including muscle endurance, strength, growth, and recovery – when such claims are not true. (Sandviks et al v. PhD Fitness, LLC, Case No. 17-cv-744, D. SC.)
