On April 10, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Herbs of Kedem for selling products with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).

The company was promoting herbal products with statements such as "Corona Virus Prevention... As long as there is no vaccine for this new virus, it is recommended to consider using natural substances... Since plants deal with plant viruses, they sometimes produce substances that can be effective against other viruses as well... Recommended products... ORANIT... TAHAR... NIKUZIT... EZQVIT... KALITA... oral spray..."

The FDA emphasized that there are currently no approved treatments for the virus stating: "For COVID-19, no such study is currently known to exist for the products identified above." 

The agency 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.
