CytoSport Healthy Energy Misrepresentation Settlement
We are no longer accepting inquiries regarding CytoSport and its Muscle Milk products.
In March 2013, CytoSport reached a $5.3 million settlement as part of a class action lawsuit. The company had faced allegations that the nutritional content of Muscle Milk was misrepresented on product labels. The suit was first filed in 2011 and claimed that the company marketed its products as a ‘healthy source of energy’ despite high fat and sugar content. The lawsuit was filed by Claire Delacruz and sought to certify a class of all consumers who purchased CytoSport Ready-To-Drink products between July 18, 2007 and December 21, 2012.
As part of the settlement, CytoSport will also remove “Healthy, Sustained Energy” from Muscle Milk’s principle display panels for three years unless the product contains less than 0.5 grams of saturated fat per serving, or is accompanied by the phase ‘see nutritional information for saturated fat content.’
