CytoSport Muscle Milk $12 Million Class Action Settlement

It has just been announced today that a Proposed Settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit. The class action was brought forward by purchasers of certain CytoSport/Muscle Milk Protein Ready-To-Drink Shake and Muscle Milk Protein Powder products, suing CytoSport, Inc. (“Defendant”). The Plaintiff alleges that the defendant made false and misleading statements about the protein content of the Ready-To-Drink products and allegedly misleading “Lean” and “L-Glutamine” claims on the Protein Powder products. Defendant denies the Plaintiffs’ allegations and any wrongdoing.
