January 2014: A federal judge dismissed a class-action lawsuit against Vitamin Shoppe for allegedly deceptively marketing True Athlete Training Formula. The complaint, which was originally filed in May 2013, alleges that the company falsely represents that the supplement will provide various workout benefits when its dosages of active ingredients actually cannot provide such benefits. The judge dismissed the complaint because the plaintiffs did not identify or explain the way specific statements in the supplement’s marketing materials were false or deceptive. The complaint was dismissed without prejudice, meaning that the plaintiffs may re-file an amended complaint to fix the problems. (Hodges et al v. Vitamin Shoppe, Inc., Case No. 13-cv-03381, D. NJ.).
