FTC Continues to Issue Warning Letters to Stop Unsubstantiated COVID-19 Treatment Claims

  • The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) issued letters to 45 companies warning them to stop marketing their products with false and unsubstantiated claims that these products can cure or prevent COVID-19.
  • The letters target companies that market a wide variety of products and therapies, including gene therapy products, Chinese herbal medicines, supplements, IV therapy, air and water purifiers, music therapy, and chiropractic therapy.
  • As previously reported, the FTC sent two rounds of similar letters to other marketers in recent weeks, in addition to a round of more than 25 letters that the FTC issued in conjunction with the Food and Drug Administration.
