Health fraud drug products are articles of unproven effectiveness that claim to treat disease or improve health.
In addition to wasting billions of consumers’ dollars each year, health scams can lead patients to delay proper treatment and cause serious—and even fatal—injuries.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is very concerned about these fraud products, and removing these products from the market remains one of the Agency’s top priorities.
Dataset includes some potentially hazardous products with hidden ingredients marketed to consumers. FDA is unable to test and identify all products marketed as dietary supplements on the market that have potentially harmful hidden ingredients.
Even if a product is not included in this list, consumers should exercise caution before using certain products.
