Prosecutors, local company reach settlement on medical device claims

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

If you bought a light therapy kit from a local company that claimed to treat or cure a serious condition like fungal meningitis or Lyme disease, you might be able to get your money back.

The Tennessee attorney general announced Tuesday afternoon that the state and a Davidson County judge had approved an agreement between the state and Thomas Michael Haarlander, of Nashville. Haarlander was doing business as the Avalon Effect in Franklin, selling light therapy kits.

The settlement of the state's lawsuit requires Haarlander's company to stop making misleading marketing claims about the Quantum Series Wellness Pack.

It also requires the defendants to put $50,000 in an escrow fund to refund consumers who bought the product.

If you would like to be considered for a refund, call 615-370-0051.
