On Sept. 23, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning letter to Rima Laibow and Ralph Fucetola of Natural Solutions Foundation informing them that the company’s products, including Silver Sol Nano Silver and High Potency CBD Hemp Oil, which are marketed as Ebola treatments, violate the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

Based on the claims made on the company’s website as well as in a YouTube video, the FDA says the products are marketed as drugs, and therefore fall under the agency’s jurisdiction.

In the letter, the FDA notes

The company’s claims about its Ebola treatments also violate Federal Trade Commission laws, which prohibit advertising that a product can prevent, treat or cure human disease without reliable and valid scientific evidence.

In the past month, the World Health Organization as well as the FDA have warned consumers about such unproven therapies. Both remind the public that there are no known cures or treatments for Ebola; the therapy received by a handful of care workers in the U.S. are still considered experimental and only used as an exception to the agency’s usual drug approval process.

The company has 15 days to correct the violations, or face legal action and seizure of the products.
