The FDA reported that it had sent P and G a warning letter about the "unlawful" marketing claims. The FDA claimed that this amounted to an unapproved drug because it did not contain proper instructions for use and carried the unsupported claims that the product could effectively fight germs that cause colds.
Also, "the product claims to be effective in fighting the "germs" that cause colds. We are not aware of sufficient evidence to show that that the product is generally recognized as safe and effective in preventing individuals from becoming infected with colds, a condition caused by viruses."
Alas, the FDA gives P and G 15 working days to take steps to take action, or more as needed. How long will it take? Stay tuned ... .
