What’s the Problem?
Plaintiff Harvey Mahler alleges that The Vitamin Shoppe illegally misled consumers about the ingredients in its “One Daily Men’s 50+” multivitamin, according to Law360.
Mahler claims he purchased 2 bottles of the supplement and took it as directed, but soon began experiencing medical problems including “numbness in his extremities, a burning sensation in his feet, hand weakness, slurred speech, headaches, confusion and vision issues.”
Plaintiff further alleged that he was subsequently diagnosed with nerve and kidney damage that required surgery and stent placement to repair.
Independent testing later showed that “Vitamin Shoppe One Daily Men’s 50+” contains unsafe levels of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and cadmium, which can be harmful if consumed, according to the lawsuit.
The Vitamin Shoppe knew or should have known about the dangers surrounding these toxins, since the information had been publicly available, and “should have taken steps” to make sure its “One Daily Men’s 50+” was free of harmful substances before marketing the product, the complaint states.
The suit brings counts of negligence, breached warranty over a defective product, and strict product liability against The Vitamin Shoppe.
