Cases » Boiron Canada – Oscillicoccinum
In March 2012 REO launched a proposed class action against Boiron Canada relating to the marketing of Oscillicoccinum and Oscillicoccinum Children. According to Boiron, Oscillicoccinum is effective in relieving flu symptoms. The Statement of Claim alleges that, among other things, Boiron breached several consumer protection statues in its marketing of Oscillicoccinum as the product contains virtually none of its purported active ingredient namely Anas Barbarie Hepatis et Cordis extractum (namely the extract of the liver and heart of the Barbary Duck). As a result of those alleged breaches the proposed class members have vastly overpaid for what is in essence a sugar pill. The allegations in the Statement of Claim have yet to be proven in Court.
The plaintiff will bring a motion have this action certified as class proceeding. The time and place of the hearing of the certification motion will be posted on this website as soon as it scheduled by the Court.
