Airborne 23 million poorerIn a world always reaching for the next great cold cure, news arrived Thursday that cold “curer” Airborne is no better than a placebo, it has no proven medical benefits.

Airborne has settled a class action suit over false advertising that disputed the manufacturer’s claim that it was a “miracle cold buster.” Apparently the court felt the same thing, slapping them with the massive $23.3 million fine.

Look in any pharmacy and products such as Airborne are everywhere. Classified as dietary supplements, the medication is not governed by the FDA.

People with claims for product’s purchased between May 2001 and November 2007 are invited to participate in the class action suit. Of course, you have to still have a receipts for a full refund for every package purchased. But, customers without receipts – most of us – will still get a refund, one limited to up to six packages per person.
