Excerpt from FTC Sends Refunds to Consumers Who Purchased Certain Oreck Products

In compliance with the terms of a settlement reached last year between the Federal Trade Commission and Oreck Corporation, refunds were recently sent to thousands of consumers who purchased the Oreck Halo vacuum and Oreck ProShield Plus air cleaner.

The settlement resolved charges brought by the FTC against Oreck claiming the company made deceptive claims that using the Halo vacuum or ProShield Plus reduces the risk of flu and other illnesses, and eliminates most common germs and allergens.
