People in my family swore by Airborne's fizzy elixir. I found it nauseating, at least at first. And I can't say it ever saved me from a cold or kept a cold from being worse than it might have been.

What I can say is that we haven't got receipts from our purchases, which will make it at least little harder to cash in our share of Airborne's $23.3 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit over false claims. On our show today, David Schardt, a senior nutritionist with the Center for Science in the Public Interest, takes a closer look.

UPDATE: Turns out you can get refunded for up to six bottles without receipts. Directions here. I'll play an audio interview with more details Friday on the blog/show.
