On March 26, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Carahealth for selling products with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).
The FDA and FTC emphasized that there are currently no approved treatments for the virus stating: "There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure COVID-19."
The product Carahealth Immune, which is also referred to as Immune Tonic on the company's website, was promoted with statements such as "Carahealth Immune... Contains herbal medicines that have been shown to have the desired action in influenza" and "Herbal medicines have shown anti-viral action against... viruses including coronavirus (CoV)."
The agencies instructed the companies to send an email to COVID-19-Task-Force-CDER@fda.hhs.gov within 48 hours of receipt of the warning, describing the specific steps they have taken to correct these violations.
