Park City, Utah, June 7 2018/PRNewswire/ — Nutraceutical Corporation today announced the following response to a press release issued earlier today by the California Attorney General’s office (the “California AG”) and several California counties regarding a lawsuit filed against Nutraceutical relating to the Peaceful Planet Plant Proteins Toddler Supreme protein supplement.
The California AG first contacted Nutraceutical on Friday, June 1st and Nutraceutical promptly informed the California AG the last sales of this product into California were made in February 2018 and that it voluntarily suspended any further sales pending completion of its own investigation. Nutraceutical informed the California AG that it has an opinion from a respected former FDA toxicologist that the Toddler Supreme protein supplement in fact contains ingredient levels that comply with applicable laws and regulation and does not pose any safety risk to Nutraceutical’s customers. Nutraceutical offered to supply the California AG with a formal written opinion from the former FDA toxicologist confirming that the Toddler Supreme protein supplement is safe, does not pose safety risks to Nutraceutical customers, and correcting the numerous factual errors in the California AG’s analysis of the product, but the California AG declined to wait to receive the information before moving forward with its lawsuit. Nutraceutical remains fully committed to the safety of its customers and their children, and intends to vigorously contest the lawsuit as it is believed to be without merit.
