Kelly v. Phiten USA, Inc. is all about false and misleading statements in relation to the advertising and marketing of Phiten Products. If you or someone you know purchased a Phiten Product between the dates of February 14, 2007 until July 11, 2011 you might be a class member of this class action settlement. The false and misleading statements are Phiten Products claiming certain health benefits and that these statements violated California and Iowa consumer fraud and protection laws. Phiten denies any wrong doing but has agreed to pay 3,500,000$ into a settlement fund. Assuming the settlement is approved by the courts it will provide a 300% reimbursement on the cost of the Phiten products paid by the class member. So if a class member paid $10.00 for a shoe insole they can claim $30.00 under the proposed settlement terms.
Please note that the Phiten Products in questions are as follows:
jewelry, including necklaces and bracelets, body support, including knee and elbow supports, shoe insoles, ankle and wrist bands, and waist belts, titanium tape and disks, bedding, including sheets pillows and pillow cases and lotions.
The last day to object to the settlement terms is September 22, 2011. A fairness hearing will be held on October 13, 2011 at 10 am sharp. The hearing will be held at United States Courthouse, 123 East Walnut Street, Room 130, Des Moines, Iowa 50309.
