The Dallas based makers of controversial weight loss supplement Oxy Elite Pro and GNC stores that sold it are offering rebates of up to $300 per customer under the terms of a settlement in a class-action lawsuit.
The lawsuit accused USP Labs and GNC Stores of false and misleading claims about Oxy Elite Pro, Jack3d and VERSA-1. The companies deny any wrongdoing but agreed to the settlement to avoid more costly litigation.
Older versions of Oxy Elite Pro were recalled and destroyed in 2013 after reports of liver failure, hepatitis and one death.
Customers must submit claims online or by mail before Feb. 5, 2015.
