Kantrowitz Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C., a law firm with a nationwide consumer fraud class action practice, is currently investigating potential consumer fraud claims on behalf of purchasers of S-adenosylmethionine (also referred to as “os-adenosyl-methionine” or “SAMe” or “SAM-e” or “SAME” or “samee”) supplements which are fraudulently labeled and place consumers in risk of bodily harm. SAM-e supplements are commonly sold in the form of a synthesized compound combining active SAM-e raw material, tosylate disulfate inactive salt and special tablet coding, and is referred to together as SAM-e tosylate disulfate.
Several companies selling SAM-e dietary supplements through Amazon and other forums — including Vitamins Because You Are Worth It, NusaPure, aSquared Nutrition, We Like Vitamins and BoostCeuticals –, advertise false quantities of SAM-e per serving, which at times have been found to contain as little as 12-17% of the advertised amount of SAM-e. Their falsely stated SAM-e quantities and low retail prices mislead consumers into purchasing SAM-e supplements from these Amazon sellers under false pretenses. Moreover, the misleading labeling of SAM-e supplements could lead to significant injury to unknowing purchasers who rely on the accuracy of dietary supplement labelling to make informed purchasing decisions and consume a proper dosage of vitamins and dietary supplements.
If you have purchased a SAM-e supplement and wish to speak with an attorney at the firm about this matter, please contact class action attorney Jay I. Brody, Esq., Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C., 747 Chestnut Ridge Road – Suite 200, Chestnut Ridge, NY 10977 via telephone: (800) 711-5258 or email: [email protected]
