US FDA Fights Online H1N1 Flu Virus Fraudulent Products and Claims

The US FDA is dedicated to fraudulent enforcement with regards to illegal online product marketing claiming to prevent, diagnose, treat and cure the 2009 H1N1 flu virus.

As of May 01, 2009, the FDA began to caution consumers of dishonest 2009 H1N1 online flu virus products.  The products in question are those that advocate claims to diagnose, mitigate, prevent, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 flu virus, but have not been approved, cleared or authorized by the US FDA.  The Food and Drug Administration has advised operators of the questionable websites to take immediate action to ensure that they are not misguiding consumers with their false claims.

Since the FDA’s warning, over 50 websites have obtained warning letters, and as a result more than 66% of these websites have removed the questionable claims and/or products.

Margaret Hamburg, M.D., Commissioner of Food and Drugs assures the public “We are committed to aggressively pursuing those who attempt to take advantage of a public health emergency by promoting and marketing unapproved, uncleared, or unauthorized products … and will remain vigilant in our efforts to protect consumers from these fraudulent, potentially dangerous products.”

Here is a list of unapproved, uncleared, or unauthorized products the FDA is currently focussed on:

Shampoos that claim to defend against the H1N1 flu virus

Dietary supplements that claim to safeguard infants and young children from contracting the H1N1 flu virus

Supplements that claim to remedy H1N1 flu infections within 4-8 hours

An ionic silver spray for hands, that claims to kill the virus

Unapproved tests used to identify the H1N1 flu virus

An electric instrument (which costs thousands of dollars), that claims to use “photo-biotic energy” and “deep penetrating mega-frequency-life-force energy waves” to strengthen the immune system and fend off H1N1 associated symptoms

The FDA has documented and posted all questionable websites and products on their website.
