State settlements reached in legal disputes
The Nevada attorney general’s office says the state will get more than $600,000 from settlements with toy manufacturer Mattel and dietary supplement producer Airborne Health Inc.
The agreement with Mattel and its Fisher-Price subsidiary ends a lengthy investigation that resulted in a voluntary recall of 21 million lead-tainted toys made in China. The companies will pay $12 million to 39 states, including $210,595 to Nevada.
In the second settlement, Nevada will get $460,000 from Airborne Health Inc., manufacturer of Airborne Effervescent remedies. The state’s share is part of $7 million going to 32 states to settle allegations that Airborne made false claims about the benefits of its products.
