Seller of IoWipe Warned for COVID-19 Claims
On March 5, 2021, the FDA issued a warning letter to CAMA Wellness Center/IodoRios Company, LLC following a review of the company's websites by the FDA and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) which found the company promoted IoWipe, a hand wipe product, 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)."
IoWipe was promoted with statements such as "...COVID-19 is an extremely easy virus to destroy outside the body, and the wipe has been tested on much tougher bugs" and "Even at nearly 91 years old, inventor Solomon Rosenblatt is still figuring out new ways to wipe away bacteria, fungi, and viruses. His latest product is especially relevant during COVID-19. IoWipe is a reusable, iodine-based sponge that can be used to wipe hands."
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.
