FDA Warns Seller of Colloidal Silver Eye Drops, Copper Products & More
On February 1, 2022, the FDA issued a warning letter to New Earth Healing Essentials, LLC d/b/a 5D Full Disclosure following a review of the company’s website, which found statements made about some of the company's products, including Plasma Colloidal Silver Eyedrops, Gaia’s Organic Nasal Spray, Copper Healing Roller, Plasma Copper Elixer, Plasma Gold Elixer, and Plasma Gold & Silver Elixer to be drug claims.
For example, Plasma Colloidal Silver Eyedrops were promoted with statements such as, “These eyedrops provide protection and healing from any infections, bacteria or viruses in the eyes and can be used on-the-go.” Colloidal silver was also promoted for “treatment of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, lupus,” and to “prevent the flu, H1N1 (swine) flu, and the common cold” on the company’s Plasma Gold & Silver Elixer Package webpage.
The agency warned that the products are considered to be "new drugs" because "they are not generally recognized as safe and effective for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended, or suggested. The FDA advised New Earth Healing Essentials, LLC d/b/a 5D Full Disclosure to notify the agency in writing within 15 days of receipt of the warning letter outlining specific steps taken to address any violations.
