Glucosamine Sulfate Consumer Litigation

Wolf Popper Files Class Action Against Walgreens for Selling Fake Glucosamine Sulfate

Wolf Popper LLP has filed a class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Finest Nutrition brand Glucosamine Sulfate.  Walgreens sells its Finest Nutrition brand Glucosamine Sulfate dietary supplements to consumers with the simple promise that it contains what the label says it contains—1000mg of Glucosamine Sulfate per serving.  This appeals to consumers because the majority of the medical research into the benefits of glucosamine has shown the impact of using Glucosamine Sulfate on osteoarthritis and other ailments instead of the other available forms of glucosamine.

Unknown to consumers, however, laboratory tests show that the supplements actually don’t contain any Glucosamine Sulfate at all, and instead are filled with Glucosamine Hydrochloride, which has not been shown to have the same positive effects as Glucosamine Sulfate.
