FTC Mails Refund Checks for Calcium Supplements
AdvaCAL had been promoted as "more absorbable than other types of calcium" and "superior to other calcium or prescription drug products at building bone or increasing bone mineral density."
(See ConsumerLab.com's Review of Calcium Supplements for tests of related products.)
The refund checks must be cashed by May 18, 2015 or they will become void; the amount refunded will vary depending on how much each consumer lost. Consumers are also reminded that the FTC never requires individuals to pay money or provide information before redress checks can be cashed.
In 2006, Lane Labs was ordered pay refunds to consumers who purchased other supplements from the company, including BeneFin, MGN-3 and SkinAnswer.
