What’s the Problem?
The class action alleges that Spring Valley joint supplements do not contain glucosamine sulfate, even though the labeling states that it contains 1,000 mg of the product. Additionally, the suit claims that plaintiff’s attorneys sent the supplement in question to a laboratory for analysis and found no presence of glucosamine sulfate in the product.
“Walmart is selling a dietary supplement that simply is not what it claims to be,” the complaint states.
Glucosamine, a supplement used to treat osteoarthritis, comes in several different forms: glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride and N-acetyl glucosamine. Studies have found that glucosamine sulfate is more effective than glucosamine hydrochloride, which is why many consumers prefer joint supplements that contain glucosamine sulfate.
Lead plaintiff alleges that she would not have purchased the Spring Valley glucosamine supplements had she known they did not contain the correct active ingredient. The complaint was filed on behalf of a nationwide Class and a California subclass of individuals who purchased Spring Valley joint supplements labeled as containing glucosamine sulfate.
The suit brings claims for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and violations of the California Unfair Competition Law, the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, and the California False Advertising Law.
