CVS & Rite Aid to return $ to consumers

Have you ever purchased the store version of "Airborne"
sold by CVS as "Airshield" or by Rite Aid as "Germ Defense"?
If you have you may soon be getting your money back!
Apparently the companies were sued for making
unsubstantiated claims about the products
preventing you from getting sick.

I have to admit we do buy this kind of product at home
and we do feel it helps (or maybe we like thinking it does),
but advertising it as "boosting the immune system"
was probably a bit much.

Rite Aid will start the process of refunding money on Oct. 1st.
The company is required to post a refund notice &
postage-pre-paid refund request forms,
in the cold-and-flu aisle at each of its stores
beginning on October 1, 2009.
You will have until December 31, 2009 to submit
refund requests for up to six packages of Germ Defense.

CVS just settled so I'll get back to you with the details
when they become available.
