Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: October 28, 2020 | FDA – warning letters on unapproved products for humans

  • The FDA issued warning letters to Everything Aquatic and Mr Frags, LLC, which distribute chloroquine phosphate products intended to treat disease in aquarium fish. Chloroquine phosphate has not been approved, conditionally approved, or indexed to treat disease in aquarium fish. Although the chloroquine phosphate products identified in these warning letters did not make claims about use in people, the agency is concerned that consumers may mistake unapproved chloroquine phosphate animal drugs for the human drug chloroquine phosphate. People should not take any form of chloroquine unless it has been prescribed by a licensed health care provider.
  • The FDA issued three warning letters jointly with the Federal Trade Commission to Peterson Research Laboratories dba CovercologyPredator Nutrition, and Beepothecary for selling unapproved and misbranded products with fraudulent COVID-19 claims.
