FDA Warning on RegeneSlim Weight-Loss Supplement
In August 2012, the FDA sent a warning letter to Regeneca Inc. informing the company that RegeneSlim contains DMAA, an ingredient that makes the substance adultered and illegal to sell as a dietary supplement. The agency ordered Regeneca to halt sales of RegeneSlim, and warned that failure to do so could result in additional enforcement action.
DMAA Side Effects
The DMAA contained in RegeneSlim has been linked to the following serious side effects:
- Irregular heartbeat
- Heart attack
- Liver damage or liver failure
- Kidney damage or kidney failure
- Psychiatric side effects
- Elevated blood pressure
- Sudden cardiac death
U.S. Military Halts Sales of DMAA
In February of 2012, the U.S. Department of Defense halted sales of DMAA-containing dietary supplements following the deaths of two soldiers and numerous reports of adverse health effects in service members. The previous summer, a 22-year-old soldier collapsed and died during a jog at a military base, and a 32-year-old collapsed during a fitness test and later died after a month in the hospital. Tests indicated that both soldiers died from cardiac arrest after taking supplements that contained DMAA.
About RegeneSlim 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 RegeneSlim Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members that have been injured by RegeneSlim.
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 RegeneSlim Lawsuits on their behalf.
