Herbal Supplement Pills Investigation

We are currently investigating major retailers for selling herbal supplement pills that do not actually contain the advertised herbs.

According to the New York Attorney General, four major retailers could be selling herbal supplements that do not contain any of the herbs found on their labels.  The state’s high attorney determined that GNC, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart all sell store brand herbal supplements that do not contain the advertised herbs, but instead  contain such useless fillers as rice, asparagus, houseplants, beans, pine, citrus, primrose, wheat, radish, legumes, and carrot.  In some cases, the pills could be dangerous to people unwittingly consuming something to which they are allergic.

Consumers nationwide who have purchased any of the supplements in question could be eligible for relief under federal or state statutes, or the common law.  According to the New York Attorney General’s investigation, the supplements in question include the following:

  • GNC “Herbal Plus” brand: Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto
  • Target “Up & Up” brand: Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, and Valerian Root
  • Walgreens “Finest Nutrition” brand: Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Garlic, and Echinacea
  • Walmart “Spring Valley” brand: Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Garlic, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto
