Hmm I bought tons of this stuff from the states but I'm too lazy to mail this form. I doubt they will ship to Canada.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Do they mail to Canada? I bought 3 from Amazon.com while I was in the states and have proof of purchase. Would be nice
It doesn't mention if one needs to be a US citizen, only that one needs to have purchased the product in the US. Someone should contact the administrator of the class action and see whats up. Someone should also contact Health Canada and see if their is a class action for products purchased in Canada.

"No receipts required" might trigger a lot of false claims. I know the first thing that comes to mind is "free $48"

This doesn't really belong in Hot Deals. Either you bought this stuff and got ripped off as a result of the false advertising and deserve your money back, or you didn't buy this stuff and don't deserve a penny. Either way, that's not a hot deal except for the people who are going to try to scam a free $48 and that's not what Hot Deals is about.

What was the false advertising?
The case is known as Kelly Attlesey and Ryan Coker, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated v. Optimum Nutrition, Inc., Los Angeles County Superior Court, Case No. BC484769 (“the Action”). The persons who sued are the Plaintiffs. The company they are suing, Optimum Nutrition, Inc., is the Defendant. The proposed Settlement resolves all claims related to the Covered Products, other than claims for personal injury arising from the consumption of the Covered Products.

Kelly Attlesey and Ryan Coker have filed a lawsuit (the “Action”) on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated alleging that some of the advertising and product labels for the Covered Products contain misleading statements regarding the ingredient Aminogen® contained in the Covered Products. The Action sought damages, disgorgement of profits, injunctive relief, and attorneys’ fees and costs. Plaintiffs have not claimed that the Covered Products were not efficacious or unsafe, or caused any physical injury.

The lawsuit relates to several of Defendant’s products: Gold Standard 100% Whey, Gold Standard 100% Casein, Gold Standard 100% Egg, Platinum Hydrowhey, NitroCore 24, Whey Gold Meal, After Max, and Pro Complex (collectively, the “Covered Products”). The lawsuit alleges that some of the advertising and product labels for the Covered Products contain misleading statements regarding Aminogen® contained in the Covered Products. Defendant denies all allegations of wrongdoing and liability asserted in the lawsuit. The Court has made no determination that any of the allegations are true, and has made no finding of liability or wrongdoing. The lawsuit does not claim that the Covered Products are not efficacious or are unsafe.
