What's the Herbalife Class Action About?
A $12.5 Million class action was initiated on behalf of individuals who acted as distributors for Herbalife and purchased tickets to attend two or more Herbalife Events in the United States. The original class action lawsuit made allegations that certain U.S.-based Herbalife events were misleading, and that Herbalife misrepresented the actual value of attending these U.S. Herbalife events to certain consumers and distributors.
Herbalife would charge upwards of $600 for events that claimed to provide financial benefits or success. Earlier in 2016, the FTC fined Herbalife nearly $200 Million in a settlement over allegations the U.S. government made against Herbalife. The FTC alleged that Herbalife was earning money not by providing products or services that had retail demand, but was earning revenue by recruiting other distributors to join and buy their products. While the FTC did not outright call Herbalife a "Pyramid Scheme", the FTC settlement called for a restructuring of the company. In 2023, the FTC mailed out a third round of checks totalling $4.2 Million to consumers as part of the $200,000,000 settlement.
The Herbalife events that are included as part of the Herbalife class action settlement are as follows:
• Leadership Development Weekend (LDW),
• Future President's Team Retreat,
• January Kickoff (JKO),
• January Spectacular,
• Herbalife Honors,
• African American Recruiting Tour,
• Herbalife Summit,
• Building Your Business Workshop,
• Future Millionaire Team Event (FMTE),
• RSM LA Experience,
• Galaxy Rally,
• Success Training Seminar (STS),
• Herbalife Opportunity Meeting (HOM),
• Scale to Success, and any equivalent events in Latin markets, such as FSL,
• Fin de Semana de Liderazgo,
• Mega Escuela,
• Latin Recruit Tours,
• Latin Market Extravaganza,
• Latin Market LDW, and
• Latin Market Future President's Team Retreat.
The Herbalife class action lawsuit alleges that Herbalife provided misleading information to distributors regarding the benefits of attending these events in the United States. Herbalife refutes these allegations and maintains its innocence. The decision on the matter is pending before the Court, and no verdict has been reached to determine the validity of the claims.
