A 6 million dollar settlement has been proposed in the Walgreens Wal-Born settlement lawsuit. The case dates back to 2010 and is entitled Federal Trade Commission v. Walgreen Co. The lawsuit claims that Walgreens deceptively advertised that its Wal-Born supplement line could effectively prevent colds, fight germs and boost the immune system. The problem with these claims is that there was not any scientific evidence or proof that the Wal-Born products actually prevented or treated cold or flu symptoms. If you or someone you know purchased a Wal-Born product between the dates of December 1, 2004 and March 29, 2010 you might be entitled to a settlement refund. A class member can submit up to 6 refunds at a payment of $5.00 for each return. If you submit 6 refunds you should get a $30 payment no later than April of 2013. All claim forms must be submitted by February 4, 2013 in order to be eligible for a refund. The Federal Trade Commission is considered the class counsel in the case.
