The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade
Commission are alerting the public to be wary of Internet sites and
other promotions for products that claim to diagnose, prevent,
mitigate, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus. The agencies
are also advising operators of offending web sites that they must take
prompt action to correct and/or remove promotions of these fraudulent
products or face enforcement action.
“Consumers who purchase products to treat the novel 2009 H1N1 virus
that are not approved, cleared or authorized by the FDA for the
treatment or prevention of influenza risk their health and the health
of their families,” said Michael Chappell, acting FDA Associate
Commissioner for Regulatory Affairs. more
Also beware of opening any emails with "swine flu" in the title unless it comes from someone you trust. The badpeople are at it again with infected emails. Especially do not click any links in these emails because of phishing scams which collect your personal information.
