Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into a possible class action on behalf of consumers who purchased any of the following milk thistle products from Costco. They suspect these products may not be as effective at supporting liver health as their labeling claims.
Independent lab tests have shown that these three Costco products do not contain enough of the active ingredient silymarin needed to live up to their advertised claims. Some of the supplements advertise that they contain the “standardized amount” of silymarin – the amount established by the herbal supplement industry to help guarantee the effectiveness of a product – but contain far less when tested.
Essentially, these lab tests have shown that the amount of silymarin contained in the supplements is too low and therefore renders the products useless. As a result, attorneys believe the products’ labels are misleading in that they don’t live up to their advertised claims about liver health and do not meet the minimum amount of silymarin required to advertise a product as containing the “standardized extract.”
If you purchased any of these milk thistle supplements from Costco, tell us about it by filling out the form on this page. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to hear from consumers who purchased the supplements to help determine whether a class action lawsuit can be filed. The more people they can speak to, the better chance they have at getting a class action filed.
After you get in touch, one of the attorneys handling this investigation may reach out to you directly. He or she may ask you a few questions about your experience with the product and explain how you may be able to join or start a class action lawsuit. There is no cost to speak with an attorney and you’re never obligated to take legal action unless you want to.
