What’s the Controversy Surrounding the F-Factor Diet?
In Spring 2020, Instagram fashion influencer Emily Gellis began sharing stories from her followers that claimed the F-Factor diet caused a number of troublesome side effects, including, but not limited to, the following:
It’s suspected that some of the reported side effects of the F-Factor diet, including heavy metal poisoning, may be due to an excessive amount of lead in the protein bars and powders.
The products do contain a Prop 65 warning label, which is required under California law to inform consumers that certain chemicals in a product may cause cancer, reproductive harm or birth defects; however, the company maintains that its products are safe for consumption – including by pregnant women – and only contain “trace amounts” of heavy metals due to the use of naturally occurring ingredients.
Pregnancy and Lead Exposure
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are specifically looking into claims that some F-Factor products are tainted with lead to determine whether the company misled women into believing the products were safe to use while pregnant. The website for F-Factor states that the products are “100% safe” for expectant mothers; however, if heavy metals are found to be present, a class action lawsuit could be filed over this potentially false and misleading statement.
A class action lawsuit could help uncover whether F-Factor products do indeed contain unsafe amounts of lead. A successful lawsuit could also force the company to change the way it markets its products and provide money back for past purchases.
