Airborne dietary supplement - Complaint
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- According to the official website, Airborne contains "...a special blend of zinc, ginger, Echinacea and 13 other vitamins, minerals and herbs".
Class action lawsuits and settlements
The former makers of Airborne had been accused by the FTC of using false advertising in its marketing and making unproven claims that it could help ward off harmful bacteria and germs and help prevent the flu and the common cold.
A class action lawsuit was filed against the former owners of Airborne Health, Inc. (and other defendants) alleging that Airborne falsely advertised certain therapeutic properties, including the ability to cure or prevent the common cold, when marketing products under the Airborne brand name. Defendants denied any wrongdoing or illegal conduct but have agreed to settle the litigation.
Common sense should tell you that this product is nothing short of a sucker bet.
Even though the above court action took place in 1998, do you REALLY think that anything has been improved in the product to make it functional?!
Other than avoiding cold and wet environments and people who spray your face with sneezes & coughs, NOTHING is going to help you avoid colds and there is certainly no cure for the common cold [other than drinks liquids and...etc, etc, etc. as doctors have stated for eons.
