$23.3M Settlement in Airborne False Ad Suit
The makers of Airborne, an herbal supplement that was marketed as useful in preventing and curing common colds, have settled a false advertising class action lawsuit for $23.3 million, and are offering to refund money to consumers who purchased the product. According to a Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) Press Release on the settlement, the only clinical trial over Airborne's effectiveness "was actually conducted without any doctors or scientists." The CSPI is advising consumers seeking refunds for purchase of Airborne to first get a claim form by calling 1-888-952-9080 or visiting www.AirborneHealthSettlement.com.
