FTC gets RiteAid to settle false advertising suit

“National pharmacy chain Rite Aid Corporation has agreed to pay $500,000 to settle FTC
charges that it deceptively advertised that its “Germ Defense” tablets and lozenges could prevent and treat colds and the flu or reduce the severity and duration of these illnesses. Rite Aid marketed the Germ Defense products by touting their similarity to “Airborne” products. The FTC also has charged Rite Aid’s supplier, Improvita Health Products, Inc., with false and deceptive advertising in an ongoing case.”
