State gets "Airborne" cold-drug settlement

MONTPELIER - The State of Vermont will receive $150,000 as a result of a settlement with the marketers of the number-one selling product in the cold and cough aisles of major retailers.

Airborne Health, Inc., the Florida-based maker of the Airborne Effervescent Health Formula, and its founders and owners ex-school teacher Victoria Knight-McDowell and her husband Thomas John McDowell, have agreed to pay $150,000 to Vermont to resolve allegations that Airborne made unlawful marketing claims concerning its products.

The settlement resolves the Attorney General's concerns regarding various Airborne products, including Airborne Original, Nighttime, On-the-Go, and Gummi Lozenges.

State officials declined to say how the $150,000 will be used.
