Nationwide Recall of Drug Claiming to Cure or Prevent Covid-19

Natural Solutions Foundation has issued a voluntary recall of their product, Dr. Rima Recommends, The Silver Solution after the U.S. Department of Justice filed a civil complaint in the New Jersey District Court due to the company making unsubstantiated claims that the product could prevent or even cure Covid-19. The drug was not approved by the FDA and has not been proven to be an effective treatment for Covid-19. At the time of the writing of this notice, no adverse effects have been reported by consumers, but there are concerns that patients may not seek necessary and life-saving treatment for the illness if they believe that this product is sufficient.
