PHILADELPHIA – A weight loss and wellness program company alleges that it has been damaged by statements made about its product on "The Dr. Oz Show."

GOLO LLC filed a complaint on July 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against ZoCo Productions LLC; Harpo Productions Inc.; Mehmet Oz, M.D.; and Keri Glassman alleging unfair competition, false advertising and other counts.
