Exclusive 0531-mara-shapshay-jenny-craig
A popular L.A. comic says she had to have 1,000 gallstones removed from her body all thanks to a Jenny Craig diet … and now she”s suing the weight loss giant claiming they knew their products were dangerous and did nothing to warn their customers.

Mara Shapshay — who regularly performs at the Laugh Factory and writes for Glamour Magazine — filed a lawsuit against J.C. this week, claiming she started Jenny in 2011 hoping to shed some lbs … but developed serious medical problems about a year later.

In fact, Shapshay claims she was hospitalized with severe abdominal pain … and doctors ultimately discovered roughly 1,000 gallstones in her body.

Mara says she was forced to undergo multiple surgeries and now suffers from fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting … and blames J.C. for a recent miscarriage.

But the worst part, according to Shapshay … Jenny Craig KNEW its program could lead to gallbladder disease … but failed to inform their customers of the risks.

Shapshay is seeking unspecified damage$$$.

Multiple calls and emails to Jenny Craig have not returned.
