Have You Purchased Disney- or Marvel Hero-Themed Children's Vitamins? You May Be Due a Refund
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Victory State Bank is calling your attention to a refund that doesn’t have the word “tax” in front of it.
Have you purchased Disney- or Marvel Hero-themed vitamins for your kids during the last few years – vitamins that featured characters such as the Disney Princesses, Winnie the Pooh, Finding Nemo, and Spider-Man?
If so, the Federal Trade Commission wants you to know that you may be due a refund.
The FTC is providing these refunds as a result of a settlement with a vitamin marketer named NBTY Inc. and two subsidiaries, which agreed to pay $2.1 million to settle charges that they made false health claims about their multivitamins.
The vitamins were sold by major retailers such as CVS Pharmacy, Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Kroger, Kmart, Meijer, and Rite Aid, as well as online.
The FTC urges consumers who believe they may have purchased them between May 1, 2008 and September 30, 2010, to file a claim online, or call 866-224-4336 and request a paper claim form in the mail.
Eligible consumers will have until October 12, 2012 to file their claims.
