Case Name: In re: Sinus Buster Products Consumer Litigation,
Case No. 1:12-cv-2429-ADS-AKT
District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
Case Summary:

The plaintiffs contend that Hi-Tech, the manufacturers of Sinus Buster a line of capsaicin-based drugs that are marketed and sold online and in retail stores for between $10 and $15 per bottle, made claims indicating that capsaicin has the ability to treat sinus congestion and related cold and allergy symptoms. These over-the-counter homeopathic products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA. According to the class action lawsuit, Hi-Tech falsely represented that Sinus Buster products were effective for their advertised purpose, homeopathic, FDA-approved, and proven effective.
The class action alleges that Hi-Tech misrepresented the efficacy of their Sinus Buster products in violation of consumer protection and warranty laws. The plaintiffs claim they would have not purchased the products had they been labeled accurately. Hi-Tech denies wrongdoing but has agreed to settle to avoid the expenses and uncertainty of ongoing litigation
