U.S. Coins and Paper Money


WASHINGTON — Consumers who bought certain products that were supposed to help them lose weight or prevent colds, flu and allergies could expect a refund check
in the mail.

The Federal Trade Commission sued Iovate Health Sciences U.S.A., in 2010, saying the Canadian company’s claims about its products were deceptive and made false claims.

Around 30 customers in Oregon will receive checks that range from $21.20 to $214.65.

Those checks have to be cashed within 60 days after they are issued.
