Colloidal Silver Seller Warned for Coronavirus Claims

On August 14, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to SilveryGuy for selling colloidal silver products with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).

Silver products were promoted with statements such as "Protecting Yourself and Your Family From COVID-19 With Colloidal Silver... So How Can Colloidal Silver Help Fight COVID-19?" and "Silver particles may reduce your body's overreaction to the 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.
