QuickTrim consumers have filed a class action lawsuit in Southern District of New York against Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, as well as the makers and sellers of the diet drug QuickTime, alleging “unsubstantiated, false and misleading claims” made in interviews, ads, and online, regarding QuickTrim efficacy.
According to the lawsuit, the Kardashian’s claims that QuickTrim “curbs cravings,” “burns calories,” and “promotes weight loss” are bogus. “The FDA has in fact determined that ‘there are inadequate data to establish the general recognition of the safety and effectiveness’ of caffeine for the specified use of weight control,” NY Daily News reports the lawsuit as saying. The FDA found the principal ingredient of QuickTrim to be caffeine.
The lawsuit also questions the lack of evidence to support the Windmill Health Products advertising of the full range of QuickTrim products, including pills and cleanses.
The class action lawsuit alleges violation of the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, unjust enrichment, and violation of the consumer protection laws of California, Florida, and New York. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial and compensatory and punitive damages in an amount to be determined by the court.
