Settlement Restricts Label Claims for Certain Glucosamine Supplements
The lawsuit against Perrigo charged that these claims were deceptive and misleading due to a lack of evidence. The settlement stipulates that Perrigo can seek to have the restriction on label claims modified should the company become aware of additional evidence that would support such claims.
(See a complete list of brands and products included in the settlement here).
The settlement also provides for refunds to consumers who purchased the affected products between November 1, 2005 and August 1, 2014 and who submitted a claim form before the November 14, 2014 deadline.
