Spills tea on the latest claim for cure for COVID-19

Wouldn’t it be nice if all you had to do to get rid of COVID-19 was drink tea? Well, selling people easy, feel good products – without competent scientific evidence – is something scammers are good at – and the FTC is working aggressively to stop them.

In the FTC’s recent case against false COVID-19 cure claims, the agency took action against B4B Earth Tea, LLC. The company claims that drinking their beverage (which sells for $ 60 per 16-ounce bottle) will cure the disease. But the complaintfiled by the Department of Justice on behalf of the FTC, states that the company has no scientific evidence to support their treatment or prevention claims.

There are no supplements that have been proven to treat or prevent COVID-19.

When it comes to fighting COVID-19 and detecting unsupported treatment claims:

  • Always talk to your doctor or healthcare professional before trying a product that claims to treat, prevent or cure COVID-19.
  • When there is a medical breakthrough to treat, prevent or cure a disease, you will not hear about it for the first time through an ad or sales speech on social media.
  • Visit CDC.gov and FDA.gov for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 and available vaccines.

Now share what you know and ask others to do the same.
