FDA Sends a Warning Letter to Infowars.com for Claiming Their Toothpaste & Gargle Cures COVID-19.
The FDA recently sent a warning letter to Mr. Alexander E. Jones from Free Speech Systems LLC for making unauthorized, unsupported and unapproved claims on his websites www.infowars.com, www.infowarsstore.com and www.banned.video (from where users are directed to www.infowarsstore.com) regarding the ability of certain toothpastes, gargles and gels “to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19 in people.”
The products “Superblue Silver Immune Gargle,” “SuperSilver Whitening Toothpaste,” “SuperSilver Wound Dressing Gel” and “Superblue Fluoride Free Toothpaste” listed on the websites and talked about in videos are found to be “unapproved new drugs sold in violation of section 505(a) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), 21 U.S.C. § 355(a). Furthermore, these products are misbranded drugs under section 502 of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 352. The introduction or delivery for introduction of these products into interstate commerce is prohibited under sections 301(a) and (d) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 331(a) and (d).”
The FDA has directed them to “review your websites, product labels, and other labeling and promotional materials to ensure that you are not misleadingly representing your products as safe and effective for a COVID-19 related use for which they have not been approved by FDA and that you do not make claims that misbrand the products in violation of the FD&C Act.”
Here’s a sample of the kind of misleading claims they have made in their videos:
- “I’m not going to belabor this, I’m just gonna tell ya, that for just your daily life, and your gums and your teeth and for regular viruses and bacteria, the patented Nano Silver we have, the Pentagon has come out and documented, and homeland security have said this stuff kills the whole SARS corona family, at point blank range. Well of course it does, it kills every virus. But they found that, this is 13 years ago, and the Pentagon uses the product we have. And the product we have in private label is about to be in Walmart . . . the Nano Silver toothpaste in the Superblue with the tea tree and the iodine, that’s the Superblue’s amazing, and we have the whitening toothpaste that has the Nano Silver and a lot more as well . . .they are at infowarsstore.com”
