FDA Warning Letters Address Coronavirus Claims

The US Food & Drug Administration has ramped up its efforts to tamp down sketchy claims and false promises related to treating and preventing coronavirus. The latest warning letters sent by the agency have hit companies selling products such as essential oils, sachets and CBD.

Citing the Jan. 31, 2020 Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declaration of a public health emergency and the March 13, 2020 Presidential declaration of a national emergency in response to COVID-19, the FDA said it is “taking urgent measures to protect consumers from certain products that, without approval or authorization by  FDA, claim to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose or cure COVID-19 in people.”  

Here is a rundown of some letters related to companies that operate in and around the personal care sphere.
