Uncompliant Product Name Leads To Warning Letter

#WarningLetterWednesday
This company received a warning letter for claims made in a product name. The product “Covid-19 Immune Support” is a bold Covid prevention and treatment claim. This is a basic but important reminder that product names are marketing claims.

The company was also cited for referencing Covid studies for an ingredient in their products. This “implied claim” enforcement is a continuing trend, and I caution companies to remove ingredient study references that contain disease words from their website. I talk more about this here.

This is a joint FDA and FTC warning letter and includes a cease and desist demand. I talk more about what this means here.
