Glucosamine Class Action Settlement
Claim Form Deadline: June 14, 2022 (Expired)
Proof required: No
Method of payment: Mailed Check / Virtual MasterCard
What's This Settlement About?
A $1,000,000 class action settlement has been reached as a result of a lawsuit brought against Doctor's Best glucosamine products. These products include the following:
• Doctor's Best Glucosamine Sulfate 750mg
• Vegan Glucosamine Sulfate 750mg
• Synergistic Glucosamine MSM
• Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM
• Vegan Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM
• Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM + Hyaluronic Acid
The class action lawsuit claimed that Doctor's Best sells nutritional supplements containing glucosamine hydrochloride and potassium sulfate that are mislabeled as containing Glucosamine Sulfate while containing glucosamine hydrochloride and potassium sulfate. Doctor's Best agreed to settle the lawsuit and has not agreed to any wrongdoing. As a result, an estimated $1,000,000 settlement fund has been created for which consumers or purchasers can claim up to 5 bottles at $5 with no proof required, a maximum payment of $25 per household.
If claimants do have proof of purchase, a 60% refund will be paid with a limit of up to 12 products claimed per household.
Glucosamine compounds are commonly found in supplements that are marketed to health conscious consumers, in products like joint supplements that help reduce pain, arthritis pain, inflammation, and increase mobility and durability. Often times these drugs are not subject to FDA (the United States Food and Drug Administration) approval. This is partly because the FDA is not authorized to review dietary supplement products for safety and effectiveness before they are marketed.
How Do I Qualify?
To participate in the glucosamine class action, you can file a claim if you purchased packages of any of the above products if:
• The purchases were made in the United States
