Seller of Tollovid Supplements Warned for COVID-19 Claims
On November 7, 2022, the FDA issued a warning letter to Todos Medical Ltd, aka Todos Medical USA Inc, following a review of the company’s websites, social media, and Amazon storefronts, which found statements about the company’s Tollovid 3CL Protease Inhibitor Delayed Release (Tollovid) supplements to be drug claims.
Tollovid was sold on Amazon, and promoted on the company’s social media and other websites. According the Todos’ website, its Tollovid supplement contains gromwell root, soy lecithin, powdered cellulose, HPMC capsule, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, and titanium dioxide.
The FDA’s warning letter states that the company promoted its Tollovid supplements to prevent or treat COVID-19 with statements such as, “3CL Protease Inhibitors: The Potential Key to Combating the SARS-CoV-2 Virus Life Cycle . . . Studies have shown … that by using protease inhibitors, we can stop the virus’ ability to replicate itself, halting the spread in it [sic] tracks.” and with testimonials such as, “My family and I were directly exposed a few weeks ago, we had just started taking Tollovid and no one in my family contracted it while the other family we were with all ended up positive and sick. While there is no way of proving it was because of taking Tollovid, I’m grateful we were on it and will continue to take it.”
Todos Medical USA Inc must respond to the FDA within 48 hours describing the specific steps it has taken to correct these violations.
