Kim and Khloe Kardashian may face a possible lawsuit against QuickTrim, the diet supplement they endorse. According to the New York Post, law firm Bursor & Fischer is preparing a lawsuit against Windmill Health Products, the New Jersey-based company that struck a $45 million deal with the Kardashians in 2009. The girls have been hawking this product ever since, tweeting about its use for big events including Kim’s wedding last August.
Why sue over a diet supplement? Shocker of all shockers, QuickTrim contains high levels of caffeine, which is not “safe or effective for weight loss.” Georgetown University Medical Center physician Adriane Fugh-Berman called out the diet pill back in 2010.
“They’re not saying how much caffeine is in these pills. Too much caffeine can make you jittery and increase your blood pressure and pulse. If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks . . . you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmias.”
Anyone with half a brain knows that diet pills are unsafe. It should be noted that Bursor & Fischer settled a case against Xenadrine, another supplement packed with caffeine.
Kim headed out of Barry’s Boot yesterday (February 20th) before grabbing coffee at Starbucks and getting her fake n’ bake on at LA Tan.
