The Vitamin Shoppe Sold Dangerous Male Enhancement Pills: Lawsuit

June 11, 2019 – A man from Illinois has filed a products liability lawsuit against Vitamin Shoppe Industries Inc. over claims the company sold a male enhancement pill that contained harmful toxins — including arsenic — that can cause severe injury and even death to consumers.

Plaintiff Harvey Mahler furthermore claims Vitamin Shoppe illegally duped the public regarding safety of “The Vitamin Shoppe One Daily Men’s 50+,” and that the company was negligent, breaching warranties over a defective product for which it should face strict product liability.

What’s the problem?

Vitamin Shoppe removed the lawsuit to federal court, citing the diversity of each party’s home state. Mahler’s defense team said they expected the move, but are planning to motion immediately to get the case back in state court.

Mahler, who hails from Evanston, Illinois, alleges that he purchased 2 bottles of Vitamin Shoppe One Daily Men’s 50+ male enhancement supplement in June 2017, and took the pills according to the instructions. Soon after, he claims he began experiencing “several new medical problems” after taking the vitamin, including numbness in his extremities, a burning sensation in his feet, hand weakness, slurred speech, headaches, confusion and vision problems.

Plaintiff was later diagnosed with a variety of severe health maladies including nerve and kidney damage requiring surgery, according to the lawsuit.

Vitamin Shoppe Male Enhancement Pills Side Effects

Our lawyers are filing lawsuits for men who experienced any of the following side effects after using “The Vitamin Shoppe One Daily Men’s 50+”:

  • Liver problems
  • Kidney problems
  • Numbness and/or burning sensation in extremities
  • Slurred speech
  • Weakness in extremities
  • Memory loss/confusion
  • Vision issues

Vitamin Shoppe knew or should have known about the potential health risks of these substances, Mahler claims, since data was available at the time it began selling the pills. As a result, Vitamin Shoppe “should have taken steps” to ensure its product was free of harmful substances before putting it on shelves, according to the suit.

Mahler is requesting damages in excess of $50,000, as well as any other relief the jury deems appropriate.
