Warnings issued over swine flu scams
The FDA has warned consumers to be cautious of swine flu scams online.
U.S. (WiredPRNews.com) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning over a number of swine flu scams that have surfaced online. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), officials recently stated that more than 140 bogus products have been found that are being promoted as being able to treat the virus, or diagnose and prevent it.
As noted in the report, the sites that have prompted the most concern by federal health officials include those selling fake Tamiflu. Alyson Saben, with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s swine flu consumer fraud team, is quoted by the AP as stating of the issue, “We have no idea of the conditions under which they were manufactured. They could contain contaminated, counterfeit, impure or subpotent or superpotent ingredients.”
