Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian currently serve as the celebrity spokesmodels for diet regimen QuickTrim, a range of products designed to detoxify the body and promote weight-loss.

However, four angry customers, who reportedly purchased QuickTrim because of the trio's endorsement, have now taken legal action against the Kardashians, alleging the stars make bogus statements about the drug's effectiveness in advertisements for the products.

A portion of the class-action complaint reads, "In reality, QuickTrim's main ingredient is a large dose of caffeine, which the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) has determined is not a safe or effective treatment for weight control."

The documents were filed in New York's Manhattan federal court on Thursday (01Mar12), according to the New York Post.
