A class action lawsuit was filed in California against GNC and Quest Nutrition, LLC, alleging that the advertising and nutritional facts for the bars are incorrect compared to the product on the inside of the package.

PDFs of complaint and GNCs response can be found here.

Reminds me of Hank’s Protein and the UpCal-D fiascoes of years past…
