FDA takes action against 17 companies for illegally selling products claiming to treat Alzheimer’s disease Products make unproven claims for treating multiple diseases and conditions

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today posted 12 warning letters and 5 online advisory lettersissued to foreign and domestic companies that are illegally selling more than 58 products, many that are sold as dietary supplements, which are unapproved new drugs and/or misbranded drugs that claim to prevent, treat or cure Alzheimer’s disease and a number of other serious diseases and health conditions. These products, which are often sold on websites and social media platforms, have not been reviewed by the FDA and are not proven safe and effective to treat the diseases and health conditions they claim to treat. These products may be ineffective, unsafe and could prevent a person from seeking an appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
