FDA Investigates Potentially Fraudulent Products With Claims To Cure, Protect Against Swine Flu

The AP reports, “The Food and Drug Administration has found at least 20 websites that may be fraudulently marketing products with claims that they guard against or cure swine flu, an agency official said Monday.” One company, ReBuilderMedical Technologies Inc., has been given “48 hours to take corrective action or face criminal or regulatory action from the FDA,” according to Alyson Saben, head of “a new FDA swine flu consumer fraud team.” Investigators have “found at least 20 other sites peddling products for swine flu accompanied by potentially fraudulent claims,” Saben added. Among the suspected fraudulent products are “antiviral medications being sold without a doctor’s prescription, dietary supplements with exaggerated claims, and flu diagnostic and protection kits.” Saben stated that the “FDA will consider whatever means are necessary…to immediately stop the marketing” of these products. Meanwhile, the agency is also “asking members of the public to” report such products on its website.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
