FDA Warns Dr. Paul's Lab for COVID-19 Claims
On February 16, 2021, the FDA issued a warning letter to Dr. Paul's Lab following a review of the company's website by the FDA and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for selling COVID-Aid Tincture with unsupported claims that it can treat 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)."
COVID-Aid Tincture was sold in 2-ounce glass jars with a plastic dropper and contained a yellow label with a green logo that says "Dr. Paul's." The product was sold with statements such as "Directions: If illness [is] suspected, take 1 cc (1 dropperful) under tongue 4—6 times daily until symptoms subside." It has since been removed from the company's website.
The FDA 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.
