WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by the law firm of Meiselman, Denlea, Packman, Carton & Eberz, P.C.
Official notice to potential Class Members has begun in a class action lawsuit that claims the dietary supplement Relacore was deceptively advertised to New Jersey citizens and residents. Relacore was marketed primarily as a weight and belly-fat reduction product with the additional benefits of lessening anxiety and elevating mood. The lawsuit claims that there was no scientific proof that Relacore provides such benefits. The Carter-Reed Company, LLC, and other defendants, deny they did anything wrong and contend that they have scientific substantiation for Relacore, and that the advertisements for Relacore are not deceptive.
The New Jersey Supreme Court has certified the case to proceed as a class action. At this stage, no determination has been made as to which side is right and the case is proceeding to trial. A trial date has not yet been set.
New Jersey citizens and residents who purchased Relacore any time since 2002 are Class Members. This includes people who purchased Relacore through retailers, directly over the Internet, or by calling a toll-free phone number, provided that the purchaser resided in, or was a citizen of, New Jersey at the time of purchase.
Class Members do not need to do anything to stay in the Class. Class Members who wish to exclude themselves from the Class may do so by January 20, 2013. Additional information concerning the lawsuit may be found at www.Relacore.com or can be obtained by calling 1-855-460-1531.
