HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania, along with 31 other states and the District of Columbia, reached a $7 million settlement with Airborne Health, Inc., and its owners, over allegations of deceptive advertising and marketing of numerous products containing their Airborne Effervescent Health Formula. Pennsylvania will receive more than $128,000.

Attorney General Tom Corbett said that Airborne Health, Inc., allegedly made health-related claims in the marketing, packaging, advertising, offering and selling of their line of dietary supplements that were not backed by proper scientific evidence.

Corbett said that Airborne - Original is the number one selling dietary supplement in its category and is sold at most major retailers. It consists of Vitamin A, E, zinc, selenium and large doses of Vitamin C.

Corbett said that the settlement covers all Airborne products, including Airborne - Original, Airborne - Pink Grapefruit, Airborne - Lemon-Lime, Airborne - Nighttime, Airborne, Jr., Airborne On-The-Go, Airborne Seasonal Relief, Airborne Sore Throat Gummi Lozenges, Airborne Soothing Throat Gummi Lozenges, Airborne Power Pixies, and any substantially similar product that Airborne produces in the future.
