Seller of "Dr. Hotze's Immune Pak" Products Warned for COVID-19 Claims
On December 2, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Health & Wellness Center International One, L.L.C. dba Hotze Vitamins for selling Dr. Hotze's Immune Pak with Vitamins A, B, C, D, Zinc and Probiotics; Dr. Hotze's Kids Immune Pak; and Dr. Hotze's Teen Immune Pak with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).
Immune Pak products were promoted with statements such as "The time to start boosting their immune system is now... because of the coronavirus... Another way to help boost their immune system is with quality vitamins, minerals and probiotics. Take a look at the many health benefits of these supplements" and "Research demonstrates that probiotics are safe and effective for fighting the common cold and influenza-like respiratory infections..."
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 COVID-19-Task-Force-CDER@fda.hhs.gov within 48 hours of receipt of the warning, describing the specific steps it has taken to correct these violations.
