CVS Algal-900 DHA Supplement Class Action Settlement
A class action settlement is providing class members with a full refund or $7 in voucher to CVS.
More about the case can be found at www.cvsdhasettlement.com.
The case is entitled Worth, et al. v. CVS Pharmacy Inc., and is under review in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
Class members in the case claim CVS marketed their Algal-900 DHA dietary supplements as being able to help with memory improvement when it did not actually help improve a person memory.
CVS denies any actions of wrongdoing but has agreed to settle in order to avoid more trial.
