At A Glance

This Alert Affects
Anyone who purchased one or more of the following protein powders: MusclePharm's Arnold Schwarzenegger Series Iron Mass, Nature's Best's Isopure or MuscleTech's Nitro-Tech or Phase8.
What's Going On?
It is believed that the manufacturers of these products may be cheating the system by "spiking" their protein powders with synthetics and other substitutes. As a result, the products may not be living up to their advertised claims.
What Is Protein Spiking?
Protein spiking occurs when a company adds cheaper ingredients with high nitrogen levels to its protein powders and shakes. Because many protein tests use nitrogen levels as an indicator for grams of protein, the products test positive for high levels of protein – even though they don't actually have this much protein in them. Protein spiking is also known as amino acid spiking or nitrogen spiking.
What Can I Do?
If you've purchased one of these protein powders, Class Action lawyers want to hear from you. They're currently working to determine whether the companies that manufacture these protein powders can be sued for allegedly misleading consumers about the ingredients in their products and their advertised benefits.
