August 2016: After a trial, a judgment was entered in favor of the companies because plaintiffs did not sufficiently prove that advertisements were likely to deceive reasonable consumers and that the products do not work as advertised.

August 2014: A federal judge certified a class in a lawsuit against Hyland’s Inc. The complaint, which was originally filed in 2012, alleges that the company falsely and misleadingly marketed several of its homeopathic products as “natural” and effective over-the-counter remedies when, according to plaintiffs, the products do not work as advertised and contain synthetic and artificial ingredients. The class certified by the judge includes purchasers of the following products:

  • Calms Forte,
  • Teething Tablets,
  • Migraine Headache Relief,
  • Colic Tablets,
  • Leg Cramps with Quinine,
  • Leg Cramps,
  • Defend Cold & Cough,
  • Defend Cold & Cough Night,
  • Hyland’s Cough, and
  • Seasonal Allergy Relief.

The judge refused to certify the class for purchasers of ClearAc and Poison Ivy/Oak Tablets finding that, among other things, there was no evidence any of the named plaintiffs relied upon statements made on the packaging for either of these products when purchasing them.
