Selling crap online, and claiming that it has medical value, is illegal. This is just and proper, because it’s wrong to con sick people out of money. Yet it’s so profitable to do so that it remains a flourishing business. And those sellers who may genuinely believe their product helps people also deserve to be turned in and prosecuted. They’ve heard the research already, they’ve just chosen to ignore it. Well, they may find it a little harder to ignore a warning letter from the Food & Drug Administration.
This online form can be filled out to report online sales of fraudulent products that make specific health claims. If you claim that your product diagnoses, treats, prevents, or cures any disease, then your product is classified as a drug; and it’s illegal to sell unapproved drugs in the United States. Therefore, any web site that sells any form of alternative medicine, or non-FDA approved gadgets or contraptions, and makeS specific medical claims about it, are breaking the law, and are fair game for this form to be used.
The form is short. Just be sure to state your complaint specifically and succinctly. An unapproved product must be offered for sale over the Internet, and a specific health claim must be made about it.
Bookmark it. Use it. Protect your neighbors from con artists and vultures.
