Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee attorney general has entered a settlement with a Nashville man whose company claimed a medical device could treat or cure serious medical conditions such as fungal meningitis and Lyme disease.

The settlement requires Thomas Michael Haarlander and his business, The Avalon Effect Inc. of Franklin, to stop making misleading marketing claims about a medical device called the Quantum Series Wellness Pack. The settlement also requires the defendant to place $50,000 in escrow to refund customers.

State prosecutors said the company was marketing the device between October and November 2012, during which there was widespread media coverage about a national outbreak of fungal meningitis linked to tainted medicine.

Consumers who purchased the device and want a refund should contact the settlement administrator at (615) 370-0051.
