Colloidal Silver Seller Warned for COVID-19 Claims
On December 2, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Heavenly Natural Products for selling various Carbon 60 and colloidal silver products, including AVOCADO C60 ANTI-VIRAL COMBO — VIRUS PREVENTION (made with C60 WITH AVOCADO and Heavenly Silver) with unsupported claims that they can treat coronavirus (COVID-19).
AVOCADO C60 ANTI-VIRAL COMBO — VIRUS PREVENTION was promoted with statements such as "HOW C60 MAY HELP FIGHT AGAINST CORONA VIRUS" and "Colloidal silver is an ancient remedy commonly utilized for its... anti-viral activities."

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.
