Overview Of The Proposed Settlement

Farbod Nasseri v. CytoSport, Inc., Case No. BC439181

A lawsuit is pending in the Los Angeles Superior Court that may affect your rights. The plaintiffs in this lawsuit claim that that CytoSport did not adequately inform consumers that certain products, including Muscle Milk® and Monster Milk®, allegedly contained lead, cadmium, and/or arsenic. CytoSport vigorously denies these claims, responding that trace amounts of metals are found in the environment and in many agricultural products, and that the products are safe, as confirmed by independent testing by accredited third parties. Plaintiffs’ Complaint does not allege that CytoSport violated the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act. The Court did not rule in favor of plaintiffs or CytoSport. Instead, the parties agreed to a settlement to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuits.
