Hyland’s Mass Produced ‘Homeopathic’ Products Settlement

samantha severyn

In a lawsuit against Hylands Inc. for making false and misleading statements in regard to the effectiveness of particular homeopathic products, a settlement has been reached. The products included in the settlement are:

  • Cold ‘n Cough 4 Kids
  • Cough Syrup with 100% Natural Honey
  • Sniffles ‘n Sneezes 4 Kids
  • Cold Relief Strips 4 Kids with Zinc
  • Nighttime Cold ‘n Cough 4 Kids
  • Complete Flu Care 4 Kids
  • Baby Teething Gel
  • Baby Cough Syrup
  • Baby Gas Drops
  • Baby Infant Earache Drops
  • Baby Nighttime Tiny Cold Syrup

According to the lawsuit, Hylands falsely represented the above products as to “provide fast, safe and effective relief from cold and flu symptoms.” The plaintiffs argue that homeopathy is pseudoscience and that Hyland’s homeopathic products are “nothing more than sweetened, flavored water with only highly diluted concentrations of the products’ so-called ‘active ingredients.”

If you purchased any of the above products between March 8, 2008, and March 30, 2017, you may be entitled to a Full Refund from the Hyland’s class action settlement. Class Members who are able to submit a proof of purchase along with their Claim Form will receive a full refund for all covered products purchased. Those who are unable to submit a receipt will be able to claim up to two Class products for a full cash refund in the amount of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.

Deadline to File a Claim: 6/28/17
