North Isle Wellness Center Warned for Coronavirus Claims

On June 19, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to North Isle Wellness Center for selling products with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).

The agency emphasized that there are currently no approved treatments for the virus and has previously stated: "There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The product Blu Block was promoted with statements such as "BLUBLOCK... Shield Against CoronaVirus... It's [sic] key ingredient is Methylene Blue. Methylene Blue works by producing a hydrogen peroxide burst within the blood to kill the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on contact" and "Blu block is a skin tonic with Methylene Blue and colloidal ions that... boosts immune system to inactivate viruses on contact including COVID-19."

The FDA 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.
