FDA Warns Seller of Supplements and Chocolate Promoted to Treat Ebola

On September 23, 2014, the FDA issued a warning letter to Natural Solutions Foundation, following a review of the company's websites which found statements made about Silver Sol Nano Silver (also called The Silver Solution) and CBD Organic Dark Chocolate Bars (also called High Potency CBD Hemp Oil) to be drug claims. The two products are also sold together in "Dr. Rima Recommends" Personal Protection Pack and Family Protection Pack. 

Silver Sol Nano Silver contains silver and was promoted to treat Ebola and other viral infections with statements such as "Nano Silver at 10 PPM IS the definitive prevention and therapy for Ebola virus" and "[T]here is good reason to believe that there already is a natural solution for, and prevention against, the terrifying novel Ebola virus... That nutrient substance is Nano Silver.

(See ConsumerLab's answer to the question, Is ingesting colloidal silver helpful for any condition and is it safe to use? for more information.)

CBD Organic Dark Chocolate Bars contain chocolate and hemp oil and were promoted to treat pain. Along with Silver Sol Nano Silver, the chocolate bars were promoted with statements such as "[T]he CBD will alleviate the terrible pain of the disease while the silver works its wonders..." and "Why ...Nano Silver and CBD? Because if you do get Ebola, you will be in great pain and while Nano Silver takes care of the disease, I simply do not want you to suffer."
