FDA Warns Seller of Chaga for Coronavirus Claims

On August 6, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Canadian Chaga for selling 124 Chaga Capsules, Chaga Tea, and Canadian Chaga Tincture with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).

Canadian Chaga products were promoted with statements such as "Chaga is believed to be one of the highest antioxidants you can get and guess what that means it may fight against Corona-virus and or cancer. I am taking my Chaga everyday so I hopefully don't get controlled by a virus." 

The FDA 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 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.
