If you've purchased select varieties of Emergen-C supplements between 2006 and 2012, you may be able to claim refunds as part of a recent class action lawsuit settlement.

Alacer Corp., the parent company of Emergen-C, has agreed to pay $6.45 in settlements after a class action lawsuit alleged false advertising practices. Apparently the company was sued after making "immunity-related, energy-related, and metabolism-related" claims in their advertising.

Alacer Corp. admits no wrong-doing in the class action lawsuit settlement, but has agreed to settle in order to avoid the expenses of continuing with a trial.

Shoppers with proof of purchase -- like a register receipt or box packaging -- can submit for up to $36 in refunds per household. However, shoppers without proof of purchase can also submit a claim and receive a maximum refund of $19 per household.

You must submit your claims by March 27, 2014 in order to receive your full or partial refunds for purchase.
