CytoSport Muscle Milk: ‘Fat-Laden Junk Food’

If you actually thought that Muscle Milk would buff you up, and were sorely disappointed, you may be able to get some money back. A recent class-action lawsuit against Muscle Milk and its line of nutrition supplements was settled for $5.3 million, meaning that anyone who bought a Muscle Milk product between 2007 and the end of 2012 may be able to get a refund. The lawsuit debunked Muscle Milk’s claims that the drinks provided "Healthy, Sustained Energy" and "healthy fats," — and the lawsuit found that the drinks contained trace amounts of metals, including lead, cadmium, and/or arsenic. (What, you don’t like drinking lead?) The result of the lawsuit (in which the California federal court called the Muscle Milk drinks "a fat-laden junk food") now means that CytoSport must remove the offending labels and pay up. Lexology also notes that CytoSport will donate $85,000 to the American Heart Association to "further the class’ interest in cardiovascular health." Because cardiovascular health and sugary protein drinks definitely go hand in hand.
