Simple Silver Cannot Be Promoted to Prevent or Treat COVID-19

On October 23, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Peterson Research Laboratories LLC for selling the product Simple Silver with unsupported claims that it can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).

Simple Silver was promoted with statements such as "Simple Silver (Colloidal Silver) with ionic solubility technology is a dietary supplement that has ionic solubility that may supports the Immune system ability to fight off and kill nasty pathogens that can cause illnesses inside and outside the body such as: CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)..."

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 company to send an email to within 48 hours of receipt of the warning, describing the specific steps it has taken to correct these violations.

See ConsumerLab's answer to the question: What are natural remedies for coronavirus (COVID-19)? Do supplements like zinc, vitamin C, or herbals work?
