GNC is thus marketing andselling either snake oil or illegal controlled substances," thecomplaint states.
     "This consumer class action arises formGNC's sale of certain steroid hormones that GNC knows are ineffectivefor their intended, marketed and ordinary purpose," the complaintstates.
     "The utter lack of value to consumers who purchasesteroid hormone products from GNC lies at the heart of this case. GNCunfairly and deceptively masks this lack of value through knowingconcealments, false implications and affirmative misrepresentations."
