What’s the Problem?
A preliminary laboratory analysis conducted by the FDA has determined that Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50 contains the anabolic steroids methasterone and dimethazine, controlled substances which are not included on the supplement’s labeling. According to the Drug Safety Communication, women who used Purity First B-50 experienced abnormal hair growth and missed menstruation, and men reported impotence and low testosterone levels. A number of Life Chemistry supplement users required hospitalization to treat their injuries.

Purity First Declines to Recall Illegal Supplement
Due to the fact that both methasterone and dimethazine are controlled substances which are not listed on the labeling of Purity First B-50, this product is illegal and cannot be sold as a dietary supplement in the U.S. However, the manufacturer has not recalled or issued a warning about its potential health consequences, and Purity First B-50 is still widely available in retail establishments and on the Internet. Supplement users who are experiencing symptoms of any of the side effects listed above should consult their physician and report the problem to the FDA.
About Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50 Supplement Class Action Lawsuits
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Purity First B-50 Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members that have been injured after using Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50 Supplements.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50 Supplement Lawsuits on their behalf.
