FTC SENDS REFUNDS TO PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT NOPALEA
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks to people who bought Nopalea, a cactus-based fruit drink. TriVita Inc., the company that marketed Nopalea, claimed that the drink would treat a variety of health problems, but didn't have scientific evidence to back up its claims.
The first round of checks mailed in May 2015. Because money still remains in the fund, the FTC is mailing an additional 58,000 checks totaling more than $791,000.
