This case involves a nutritional supplement product which the plaintiff in Alaska claimed was contaminated with metallic compounds. The plaintiff also claimed that the manufacturer marketed the product towards special-needs individuals, and that the product claimed to be organic and non-gmo despite indications to the contrary. The plaintiff purchased the supplement over a period of several months, during which time she gave it to her daughter, who suffered from autism, on a daily basis. At the conclusion of this period, the child’s autism had worsened noticeably, allegedly due to the contaminants present in the supplement. The FDA eventually went on to recall the supplement.
