Optimum Nutrition Settlement

http://www.enzymesettlement.com/

If you purchased certain Optimum Nutrition, Inc. products containing the ingredient Aminogen® you could receive compensation from a Class Action Settlement.

The Settlement affects the rights of individuals who purchased, for personal use and not for resale, Gold Standard 100% Whey, Gold Standard 100% Casein, Gold Standard 100% Egg, Platinum Hydrowhey, NitroCore 24, Whey Gold Meal, After Max, and Pro Complex (the “Covered Products”) in the United States, its territories, or at any U.S. Military facility or exchange, from January 1, 2008 until November 16, 2012.

The Settlement will provide for payments to all Class Members who properly submit Claim Forms by May 28, 2013. Each Class Member will be eligible for refunds as follows: $16.00 per unit of the Covered Products purchased for personal use during the Class Period, up to a maximum of 3 units per household.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ARE AFFECTED WHETHER YOU ACT OR NOT.

Class Member rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in detail on the Frequently Asked Questions page of this website, and in the Detailed Notice and Settlement Agreement.

Submit a Claim This is the only way to receive monetary compensation.
Exclude Yourself This is the only option that allows you to be part of any other lawsuit against the Defendant about the Covered Products.
Object Tell the Court why you do not like the Settlement.
Go to the Hearing Ask to speak in Court about the Settlement.
Do Nothing Get no monetary compensation. Give up your right to be part of any other lawsuit about the Covered Products, other than claims for personal injury arising from the consumption of the Covered Products.

The Court in charge of this case has given its preliminary approval to the Settlement but still has to decide whether to give final approval to the Settlement. Payments will be made if the Court gives final approval to the Settlement and after appeals, if any, are resolved. Please be patient.

We will update this website with new information as it becomes available.

Optimum whey uses trace amounts of aminogen, and markets it as using a lot more... most likely a marketing ploy

nothing wrong with the ingredient aminogen, ON just being sued for "misleading information"

instead of going to trial, ON is just issuing a settlement to avoid lawyers fees etc

US legal system is a joke btw. have any of you ever bought their products strictly because it said it contained aminogen? LOL

I seem to get class action literature in the mail for common stock multiple times a year.

But spending time to file for the chance to win $16

Kind of odd, since optimum also produces BCAAs.

It also has digestion aiding enzymes that help reduce bloating etc

I had never heard of aminogen, just had looked it up when I saw it as an ingredient in the 100% natural whey (a trademark in a natural product = alarm bells lol), but I guess it is a "premium" quality brand name, so I'm assuming ON wanted to market it, since they deemed it a more valuable brand than their own. But they only used trace amounts (assuming to save on costs) and that's why they have a class action lawsuit , for "misleading" statements.
