Drug Store Chain Sued Over Vitamin Deficiency Claim

(Chicago, IL)  —  A Bakersfield, California woman is suing Walgreens over claims the company makes about a vitamin E supplement they sell, which she says is deceptive.  The label on the “Walgreen’s Vitamin E 400 IU Dietary Supplement” says it contributes to cardiovascular health by protecting LDL cholesterol.  Plaintiff Andrea Trujillo says that’s false and clinical studies show vitamin E doesn’t work that way.

The supplement does contain a label saying the statement has not been evaluated by the FDA.  Walgreens is declining comment.  The suit was filed in federal court in Chicago.
