The FDA sent a letter to Jones on Thursday after determining a number of products InfoWars was selling were being marketed as ways to “mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19 in people.”
Jones profits off the sale of an assortment of pills, gear, survivalist rations and other products sold on his online store.
The products flagged by the FDA included “Superblue Silver Immune Gargle,” “SuperSilver Whitening Toothpaste,” “SuperSilver Wound Dressing Gel,” and “Superblue Fluoride Free Toothpaste.”
The letter explains that Jones marketed the products during videos in February and March, including one where he asks people to buy the product “if you are concerned about the coronavirus or the flu or the common cold.”
The FDA gave Jones 48 hours to respond to their letter with “specific steps you have taken to correct” the violations of marketing the products. If he doesn’t, he could face “legal action, including, without limitation, seizure, and injunction.”
“We advise you to review your websites, product labels, and other labeling and promotional materials to ensure that you are not misleadingly representing your products as safe and effective for a COVID-19 related use for which they have not been approved by FDA and that you do not make claims that misbrand the products,” the letter reads.
Last month, the New York Attorney General’s office issued a cease-and-desist to Jones over claims that toothpaste and pills he was selling could fight coronavirus.
