The FDA just issued strongly-worded letters to 14 U.S. companies that have been marketing and selling products that claim to prevent and/or treat cancer. The 14 companies sell 65 different cancer-related products that are available for purchase on various websites, including through social media.
According to the FDA news release, the companies that received the warning letters made products such as ‘pills, topical creams, ointments, oils, drops, syrups, teas and diagnostics (such as thermography devices).’
The letters request that each company notify the FDA of their plans to cease production and sale of the products or to seek product approval from the FDA. Failure to react appropriately will be met with legal consequences.
