A woman named Christie Christensen has filed a class action suit claiming that Michael's Maximum Strength Calorie Control dietary supplement is ineffective and its advertising is misleading. One day after the claim was filed, a second woman announced her intention to file a similar suit.
The case's main fault with the dietary supplement is its somewhat dubious claim to enact weight loss through the intake of two capsules before major meals.
"Contrary to everything that Ms. Michaels has ever instructed, she and the companies peddling this product suggest it makes weight loss effortless," claims Christensen's attorney, Melissa Harnett, in a statement to Snark.com. "Ms. Michaels knows better - taking two pills before eating does not miraculously cause weight loss."
A woman named Kathy Hensley filed a third suit claiming that the diet pills contain an unsafe amount of citrus aurantium, a "potentially lethal" ingredient that can lead to high blood pressure and cardiac problems, according to Us Magazine.
