Diet pills called “snake oil” in class action

“A federal class action claims Dynakor Pharmacal defrauds consumers by claiming its “Akavar” diet pill enables you to “eat all you want and still lose weight. We couldn’t say it in print if it wasn’t true.” It isn’t true, the class says, nor is the claim that the drug produces “clinically proven weight loss of 1,603% without changing eating or exercise habits.”
     Defendants include Dynakor Pharmacal LLC, The Carter-Reed Co. LLC, PC Mgmt Inc., Basic Research LLC, Joseph Bode, Sheila Erickson, Walgreen Co., General Nutrition Corp., dba GNC, Drugstore.com, Western Holdings LLC, Dennis Gay, Daniel Mowrey, dba American Phytotherapy Research Laboratory, and Mitchell Friedlander.”
