Optavia products contain undisclosed toxic metals like Lead and Cadmium

What you need to know...

67% of lab samples exceeded the maximum allowable dose level for lead, per California Prop 65 regulations

Lab samples, on average, contained more lead than all 283 foods tested in the FDA Total Diet Study

Lead issue is not a new problem and it has not been addressed despite new CEO and new Optavia branding

(Medifast products that were tested in 2008 yielded similar results)

Optavia's parent company Medifast tried to suppress the information from the 2008 lab reports


Certain videos on this website are fictionalized summaries of aspects of an investigation conducted by Gotham City Research LLC, a short biased periodic journal that regularly posts news and analyses of publicly traded companies.  The videos are intended to increase awareness of problems Gotham identified with alleged diet/health products produced by Optavia, which is owned by Medifast.  If you would like additional information or to read what Gotham learned and what it thinks, please visit  www.gothamcityresearch.com, and read our full report titled: Medifast (NASDAQ: MED): Like Lumber Liquidators, But With Undisclosed Toxic Metals, and a Supply Chain Twist.  Because we are not insiders of the companies that are the subject of these videos, we cannot assure you that all of our factual claims and conclusions are correct, and so we urge you to do your own research and investigation before deciding whether to use Optavia.  Gotham believes the stock price of Medifast does not reflect the shares' true value and is too high. You should assume that as of the publication date of these videos, GOTHAM stands to profit in the event the issuer’s stock declines.
