PTSD Claims Enforcement Increasing

Find and remove high-risk “buzzwords”

PTSD Claims Enforcement Increasing

FDA enforcement of PTSD claims is increasing. 

This year there have been five PTSD-related warning letters, up from just three PTSD-related letters in all of 2021. This is an example of a high-risk “buzzword” to watch out for, and a great opportunity for companies to ensure this word is not lurking in any marketing.

🔷 Blogs: Here is a post about best practices for reducing risks when writing blogs. 

🔷 Hashtags: Here is a video about this.

Most PTSD letters also mention CBD, meaning any company selling cannabinoids should especially ensure they are not using high-risk words.
