Kim Kardashian faces diet pill lawsuit

Kim Kardashian.jpgKim and Khloe Kardashian are facing a possible class action lawsuit over their diet pill QuickTrim, according to the New York Post. The claim is that the active ingredient is a high dose of caffeine, which is not considered "safe or effective for weight loss."

The sisters received a paid endorsement and the product has reportedly generated $45 million in revenue. Law firm Bursor & Fisher is filing a lawsuit against Windmill Health Products, which struck the deal with the Kardashians. It sent an email to people who use the product, stating, "The active ingredient in QuickTrim weight loss products is a large dose of caffeine . . . The FDA has determined that caffeine is not safe or effective for weight loss."

Kim, who appeared in the ad wearing a bikini said that she used QuickTrim in 2010 and lost 15 pounds. She also claimed that she used it before her wedding. Khloe also said she dropped weight using the product.
