DENVER, July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Before you invest time and money in a fitness or nutrition program that involves protein supplements, consider the source of your supplements. At least in one instance involving powdered protein supplements, you can't always judge a book by its cover. Last spring, Denver-based law firm Hill and Robbins, P.C. commenced a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court of the District of Colorado on behalf of protein powder consumers nationwide (Terry A. Campbell and David Afshar v. James R. Cameron and The Chemins Company, Inc.). Plaintiffs contend that protein powder manufactured by The Chemins Company, Inc., contained approximately half the protein content and twice the carbohydrate content than indicated on the label. This difference obviously would impact the effectiveness of the products. The parties recently reached a settlement in which consumers could receive up to a 100% reimbursement of their purchases of the following protein powder products manufactured by The Chemins Company, Inc.: Baywood Protein, Body Designer, Colgan Protein Shake, Neogen Protein Shake, Nurish Protein, Parvenu Protein, Protein Plus, Pure-Gro, Pure-Lean, Ultrim, and Vitameal. Participants in the settlement must have purchased the protein product between January 1, 1993 and January 31, 2002. All individuals who purchased for their consumption one or more of these products during the dates specified should contact Class Action Administration, the court-appointed class administrator for the Chemins Settlement, toll-free at 1-866-540-4439.
