Seller of "COVID PACK" Warned for Coronavirus Claims

On September 9, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Pharmacy Plus, Inc. dba Vital Care Compounder for selling COVID PACK and COVID 'POSITIVE' PACK 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).

COVID PACK products were promoted with statements such as "This kit contains the standard covid kit comprised of Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, Zinc and Melatonin but also includes a 14 day supply of Nattokinase 100mg...routinely prescribed for covid positive patients. Ideal to keep in the home for emergency use when a family member tests positive for the virus."

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.
