The company which has its headquarters in Los Angeles has in the recent time past at the centre of several stirs.
 
Earlier this year, the US trade regulatory authority said that it had opened an inquiry related to the company's operations.
 
Herbalife responded to the inquiry saying that it will cooperate and regards the investigation as an opportunity to correct the misunderstandings floated in the public.

This claim has however been refuted by Herbalife.
