A Harrison Twp. man filed a class-action lawsuit Wednesday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court in which he claimed deceptive sales practices by a Cincinnati business that sells a "male enhancement" herbal product.

David C. Parker of 4551 Lansmore Drive bought an eight-month supply of Enzyte for $399.60 in October 2001, relying on the company's published claims that the product would enlarge his penis.

The product is distributed by what is now called Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals Inc., 1661 Waycross Road, Cincinnati. In his lawsuit, Parker claimed he relied on the company's representation that "Research shows that after 3 to 4 weeks, most men on the Enzyte plan will experience some gain. . . . Depending upon the individual, initial results may take from 4 to 6 weeks."

The lawsuit contends "the so-called 'research' referenced did not exist or did not constitute competent and reliable scientific evidence."

Parker took Enzyte for the directed eight-month period, but "experienced no increase," the lawsuit said.

"Mr. Parker went to get his double-your-money-back offer, and they said it was no longer in effect," Goldenberg said.
