- GNC (GNC +6%) has responded to claims from a lawsuit filed by Oregon's attorney general, saying it's filed a motion to remove the suit to federal court and that it's "without merit."
- "Consistent with retail standard practice, GNC has appropriately relied on the guarantees of suppliers that their products are lawful," the company says.
- The Oregon suit claimed that certain GNC supplements contained either picamilon or BMPEA, "potentially dangerous ingredients" that can't be lawfully used in dietary supplements.
- Those ingredients are included in supplements "widely sold" by major retailers, GNC says. "There is no basis for the Oregon Attorney General's assertion that GNC or any other retailer 'knew or should have known' that these ingredients were not legal for use in dietary supplements."
- GNC says it stopped selling the products immediately upon learning "indirectly" that the FDA didn't view the two as legal dietary ingredients.
- Shares rebounded today, up 6%, following yesterday's 14.2% slide on news of the lawsuit.
