Nurofen fined $6 million for furphy

Whether it’s a sore head, back or joints, being in pain can really get you down so it’s hardly surprising that people were so keen to purchase pain relief marketed at tackling specific pain. But the giant furphy peddled by Nurofen has cost it dearly.

Manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser was initially fined $1.7 million but on appeal by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the fine was upped to $6 million.
