GNC USPLabs OxyELITE Pro Agrees $2M Settlement


This is a settlement for the OxyElite Pro Linked to Acute Hepatitis FDA Warns lawsuit.

Los Angeles, CA: GNC Holdings Inc, the maker of USPLabs OxyELITE Pro has agreed to pay $2 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging persona injury suffered by users of the dietary supplements.

The diet supplements under the OxyElite Pro line were recalled last November following a warning letter from the Food and Drug Administration concerning the association with liver damage. In their lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege GNC sold the supplements, which contain dimethylamylamine, better known as DMAA, and aegeline, despite widespread reports that the products cause severe liver damage.

The settlement motion, filed in the Northern District of Florida, asked the court to sign off on the deal, which will provide reimbursements for consumers who bought USPlabs' OxyElite Pro and Jack3d lines of products.

The settlement class includes anyone who bought the USPlabs products between Aug. 17, 2012, and the date of final approval, according to the motion. Eligible class members will receive $35 per container of OxyELITE Pro purchased, $20 per container of Jack3d and $20 per container of VERSA-1.

The case is Velasquez et al. v. USPLabs LLC et al., case number 4:13-cv-00627, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida.
