The class action lawsuit involves the Walgreens product Wal-Born. Wal-Born (also briefly sold as Wal-Borne) is the Walgreens generic equivalent of the herbal cold remedy Airborne. Consumers would take Wal-Born or Airborne in the belief it helps to help stave off colds.
The class action (Geis v. Walgreen Co. and Roper v. Walgreen Civil Action No. 2:07-cv-4238-KSH-PS) alleges that Walgreens made false claims regarding its Wal-Born products to the effect that they could treat or prevent the common cold.
