FDA Warns Seller of Products Promoted to Treat Coronavirus in Pets and Humans

On April 7, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Savvy Holistic Health dba Holistic Healthy Pet for selling products intended for pets and humans with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).

The company was promoting products such as China Oral Nosode (also called China Corona Nosode) and CV Respiratory Kit with statements such as "AN330 —CORONA VIRAL IMMUNE SUPPORT AND/OR ACTIVE RESPIRATORY INFECTION FOR ALL AGES. Holistic Animal Remedies... For all Species" and "China Oral Nosode is the homeopathic nosode called a homeoprophylasix [sic] of Corona Virus to Assist Immunity."

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.
