The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants issued materially false and/or misleading information and/or failed to disclose that: (1) GNC unlawfully sold thousands of units of products in Oregon that contained picamilon; (2) GNC unlawfully sold thousands of units of products in Oregon that contained BMPEA; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading.

On October 22, 2015, the Oregon Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against GNC Holdings claiming that the company's nutritional and dietary supplements contain picamilon and BMPEA. Said Attorney General Rosenblum, "It is scary to know that certain products sold by GNC contain an ingredient that is not even labeled -- let alone approved in the United States."

If you suffered a loss in GNC Holdings you have until December 28, 2015 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
