In December 2015, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Zicam for allegedly deceptively marketing Zicam Pre-Cold Medicine products – including RapidMelts, Oral Mist, Ultra Crystals, Lozenges, and Chewables – as having the ability to treat cold symptoms without adequate evidence to support such claims and when scientific evidence shows that the products are “nothing more than a placebo.” (Gulkis et al v. Zicam LLC and Matrixx Initiatives, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-9843, S. D. NY.)
